Good Doc, don't be fooled by running time......

"I've long hoped for a comprehensive documentary about the Nuremberg War Trials....and this one looked good by description. The 210 minute running time seemed impressive.
Well, although the film is good, the actual running time for the documentary is only 90 minutes! The advertised running time of 210 minutes unfortunately includes the "bonus films" contained on the second disc. The Doc itself uses footage from the trials filmed by the US OSS and also features some modern interviews with the likes of Budd Schulberg. Again, the Doc is good, but far from the highly detailed work the erroneous running time suggests. According to the printed material, 25 reels(10 minutes each) of OSS material exists.....why not include ALL of that existing material as extras?
The "bonus films" are: "That Justice Be Done"(1945, USA) at 10 minutes, "Nazi Concentration Camps"(1945, USA) at 58 minutes, and "Atrocities Committed By The German Fascists In The USSR"(1946, in Russian) at 60 minutes. Two of these were shown at the trials, so include no trial footage.
A DVD with my father in it

"I ordered this DVD to watch with my father who was Sargent of the guard at the Nuremberg Trials. As we sat and watched yet another DVD about Nuremberg we found it a bit difficult to follow because the information was not in proper sequence. This is evidenced by the change of the guards uniforms back and forth from the heavier, darker, winter uniform to the lighter colored summer uniform.
My father felt the information was accurate but he had a lot of extra information to add to what was shared in the DVD.
At the end of the DVD I was shocked but very happy to see my father appear when the prisoners were taken back to their cells. My Dad was running the elevator and escorting the prisoners back to their cells. (Dad was unaware he was in this film)
While I enjoyed this factual depiction of Nuremberg, I watched my Dad's face as he called out the names people in the film and also the sadness of seeing once again what he had witnessed when he was only 18 years old."
