Qb VII (1974)
It's never too late to find justice.
|Adapted from the world-wide bestseller by Leon Uris, QB VII tells the compelling story of the gripping court battle between a Polish-born doctor and the American author who accuses him of having performed atrocious experiments on concentration camp prisoners during World War II. Starring an international cast including Anthony Hopkins, Ben Gazzara, Lee Remick, Leslie Carson, Juliet Mills and Dan O'Herlily, QB VII is superlative drama and epic entertainment.|
Editor's NoteThoughtful, provocative drama in which Adam Kelno (Anthony Hopkins), is a Knighted physician in England who is accused of having been a Nazi war doctor twenty years after the war has ended. He sues the novelist for published statements which implicate the doctor in Nazi war crimes and finds his reputation at stake. The title QB VII refers to the courtroom Queen's Bench Room 7, where the trial is held. Also starring in this film are Ben Gazzara, Leslie Caron, Lee Remick and John Gielgud. This Emmy Award winning film was aired in 2 parts on television.
