ROBERT A. TAFT
Stars Lee Tracy. Although it jeopardizes his chances for the presidency, Taft objects to the verdict of the Nuremberg trials on the grounds that American justice cannot condone trial under an ex post facto law. Taft is attacked as an isolationist, a Nazi sympathizer, and a confused thinker. Issues: genocide, the Western tradition of law and justice, and the concept of international law.
