Judgment at Nuremberg (1961)
Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) is a classic courtroom drama that explores the moral implications of the Holocaust. The film follows the trial of four German judges accused of war crimes for their role in the Nazi regime. While the film is primarily focused on the legal proceedings, there are several moments of sexual tension that add to the drama.
The most obvious example of sexual tension in the film is between the two main characters, Judge Dan Haywood (Spencer Tracy) and Frau Bertholt (Marlene Dietrich). The two share a passionate kiss in the courtroom, and their relationship is further explored in a later scene where they share a tender moment in a garden. This scene is particularly powerful, as it shows the human side of the characters and their struggle to reconcile their feelings with the horrors of the Holocaust.
The film also features a number of other moments of sexual tension, such as the flirtatious exchanges between the defendants and their female lawyers. This serves to highlight the power dynamics at play in the courtroom, as well as the moral ambiguity of the situation.
Overall, Judgment at Nuremberg is a powerful film that explores the moral implications of the Holocaust. While the film is primarily focused on the legal proceedings, there are several moments of sexual tension that add to the drama and provide a deeper insight into the characters and their struggles.
During one scene, in a footage, we briefly see some sexual drawings. Anyways, this is not so evident.
Some references to accusations of "race defilement" when discussing former laws by the Third Reich against "Aryan" Gentiles engaging in "improper" relationships with Jews, e.g. "Irene Hoffman" character, then 16, in what was seen as an "improper" relationship ("sleeping with" an elderly Jewish male neighbor).
In footage of Holocaust victims show a fully nude dead man. Penis and testicle are shown. While this is not sexual, it is pretty extreme for a 1960's movie.
