The all star cast and impressive budget are not the only things differing Judgment At Nuremberg with Sealed Verdict. For one thing there is no mention at all in 1948 of the Cold War which was now a fact. We still have four allied nations conducting the trials of the people of the Third Reich guilty of war crimes, the definition of which we were trying to arrive at still.

Ray Milland has just successfully prosecuted Nazi general John Hoyt for the massacre of the men of a village. A survivor lived to tell the tale. A French woman appeared as a defense witness for Hoyt who did in fact do a random of act of kindness for her, rare in their higher echelons of the Third Reich. Florence Marly's testimony in fact has brought her to the attention of French occupation forces who are looking at her as a possible collaborator.

We sure didn't see Richard Widmark second guessing himself over those four judges he prosecuted in Judgment At Nuremberg. But Milland whose case was made on the eye witness testimony of one man starts to doubt. He starts reinvestigating the case.

Here the Allied powers seem to be worried about a German underground springing to life. I think Judgment At Nuremberg was far more realistic on this point, the Germans themselves were worried about the Russians as were we. Where were the filmmakers who made Sealed Verdict on this issue?

Like that other Paramount feature A Foreign Affair some second unit cinematography was done in occupied Germany. I wouldn't be surprised if some of that footage found its way into Sealed Verdict.

Milland and cast deliver nice performances, but the film came to the American movie-going public already dated.
