“The Man in the Glass Booth” is a 1975 American drama film directed by Arthur Hiller. The film was produced and released as part of the American Film Theatre, which adapted theatrical works for a subscription cinema series.

Arthur Goldman , played by Maximillian Schell, is Jewish and a Nazi death camp survivor. Now a rich industrialist, he lives in luxury in a Manhattan high-rise. One day, Israeli Mossad agents kidnap Goldman and take him to Israel for trial on charges of being a Nazi war criminal. Goldman’s trial forces his accusers to face not only his presumed guilt, but theirs as well.

The film is available to watch for free here.

We will watch the film together in the TBE Library at 7:00 followed by discussion.
