Robert Shaw, the British actor best known for his roles in' From Russia With Love', 'The Sting and Jaws', turned playwright to create 'The Man in The Glass Booth'. This brilliant drama inspired by the trial of Adolf Eichmann, is concerned with quilt, paranoia, conspiracy theories and martyrdom. Maximilian Schell plays Jewish New York tycoon Arthur Goldman. Living in deep rooted paranoia and on the edge of madness in his Manhattan penthouse, Goldman is captured by Israeli agents and put on trial for Nazi war crimes, alleging that he is in fact Adolf Dorff - an S.S. colonel, torturer and killer. What follows is an emotional and intellectual rollercoaster, exploring complex themes with savagely brilliant dialogue. Director Arthur Hiller expertly reveals the true identity of the character to the audience, with heartbreaking results.
