The Condemned of Altona

An awful film, but one that will always be remembered for getting Jean-Paul Sartre an Academy Award nomination (he lost). Based on Sartre's play, it's the story of a dying German war profiteer (Fredric March) and his two sons—one a swinger (Robert Wagner) married to an Italian movie star (Sophia Loren), the other a psychotic ex-Gestapo agent (Maximilian Schell). Needless to say, the opportunities for overacting do not go neglected, especially under the laissez-faire direction of Vittorio De Sica (1963).
