Movie Info

Actor/writer Robert Shaw's powerhouse stage play +The Man in the Glass Booth was transferred to the screen as part of the American Film Theatre series. Maximilian Schell plays Arthur Goldman, a Jewish businessmen living in Manhattan in 1965. A group of Israeli underground agents barge into Goldman's office and kidnap him. He is brought to Israel, placed in a bulletproof glass booth, and put on trial. His accusers charge that Goldman is not a Jew, but in fact a notorious Nazi war criminal, guilty of unspeakable crimes against humanity. Robert Shaw's name does not appear in the credits of The Man in the Glass Booth; he was so displeased with Edward Anhalt's screen adaptation that he had his name removed from the project.

Critic Reviews for The Man in the Glass Booth

  • Films like Judgment at Nuremberg began with the assumption that morality could be upheld and responsibility assigned. The Man in the Glass Booth is an infinitely more despairing work.

  • The dramatic sins committed in The Man in the Glass Booth are formidable on their own, but coupled with the creator's specious arguments about the world situation, the film becomes intolerable.

  • Only when the ending credits are rolling will you be able to fully appreciate and understand the wonderful drama that you've just witnessed.
