Description
 
On June 19, 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the so-called "atomic spies" of the 1950s, were executed at Sing Sing Prison. Their death only fostered the belief of many Americans that the Rosenbergs were innocent, victims of the anti-Communist paranoia of the 50s, rather than spies who had stolen atomic secrets for the Russians. In this landmark documentary (aka The Rosenberg-Sobell Case Revisited), Alvin Goldstein looks at the facts and procedures of the Rosenberg case, as well as the climate of the times, interviewing jurors, FBI agents, lawyers for both sides, and the two sons of the Rosenbergs. Using documentary and newsreel footage, Goldstein creates a moving human drama, a "thoroughly researched, solidly developed...superb recreation of history, painting with bold strokes the temper of the times" (Boston Globe).

Alvin Goldstein---USA---1974---83 mins.
