Notes: Director: Arthur Hiller; As the title would suggest, the film is inspired by the famous kidnapping and trial of Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi architect of the Holocaust. However, it is a fictitious and altogether different story. It is about a rich industrialist living in outrageous luxury in present day Manhattan. His name is Arthur Goldman. But is he an ex-Nazi officer pretending to be a Jew in order to escape prosecution, or is he a Jewish concentration camp survivor that pretends to be an ex-Nazi in order to be put on a showcase trial where he hopes to expunge the demons that torment him ever since the war? Maximillian Schell in a tour de force, some would say Over-the-top performance as the Nazi officer in full regalia, which it appeared he thoroughly enjoyed.
