I just had to add...

Judgment at Nuremberg (such a great movie, based on the 1948 Justice Trial) - with, as recently mentioned right here, Richard Widmark - was written by Abby Mann (and also, according to, Montgomery Clift?!?!?).

It seems Abby Mann died the day after Richard Widmark a couple of weeks ago, on Tuesday, March 25. Which was just too strange not to mention. I mean, what are the odds?

Mann won an Oscar for that screenplay (technically: " Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium" -- because, well, that screenwriting oscar title has been through some, ahem, changes. But we've already covered that.). And Maxmilian Schell won for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

"Ernest Janning said he is guilty. If he is, Ernest Janning's guilt is the world's guilt. No more, no less."

No more, no less. Perfect line. Perfectly delivered. Sweet!

And yes, here's the link to the video, if you can't see it.
