American television producer Milton Fruchtman fervently believes that the trial with its witness accounts of Nazi atrocities should be televised to show the world the evils of the Holocaust and to combat any resurgence of Nazism and joins forces with black-listed director Leo Hurwitz. Despite death threats, reluctance to cooperate from several networks and even resistance from the Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion, who fears a ‘show trial’, the pair persist and move their cameras into the court-room. Edited daily and shown in some three dozen countries the ‘Eichmann Show’ becomes the first ever global television documentary.
Plot: The behind-the-scenes true life story of a groundbreaking producer, Milton Fruchtman, and blacklisted TV director Leo Hurwitz who, overcoming enormous obstacles, set out to capture the testimony of one of the war’s most notorious Nazis, Adolf Eichmann, who is accused of executing the ‘final solution’ and organising the murder of 6 million Jews. This is the extraordinary story of how the trial came to be televised and the team that made it happen.

Good Representation but Not Too Much More
An obviously monumental time in TV and more importantly for the stories of those subjected to the war crimes The Eichmann Show displays, this film presents the documentary production as interesting if not entirely compelling. The investigation into someone’s humanity is well studied, yet it doesn’t allow the film to particularly go anyway, although it’s opportunity to do so is limited.
The use of real footage from the time is well spliced into dramatic reenactments, and many scenes of concentration camps are incredibly difficult to watch adding to the importance of certain scenes. Overall it is a good representation of the case, however probably doesn’t fully do the enormity of the context justice, camera angles just don’t feel important given the context.
A timely reminder, with great accuracy, top notch performances. Martin Freeman & Anthony LaPaglia delivering best dramatic works here. In a year (2016) the world witnesses a resurgence of fascism this riveting epilogue from Adolf Eichmanns sentencing: “Each of us who has ever felt (they) were created better than any other human being, has stood on the threshold where Eichmann stood”. Freeman, LaPaglia reincarnated positions of producer and director for first worldwide televised trial of Nazi War criminal Adolf Eichmann. Glimpsing recent history from production point of view, we see the fanaticism and death threats endured, alongside cathartic emotional steps to healing that this realtime broadcast of accused Nazi murderer Eichmann delivered to survivors, war veterans, witnesses, world at large. Trial of Eichmann afforded for millions the first safe societal space for WWII european survivors to begn to tell their truths.
