Judgment at Nuremberg

Director Stanley Kramer ("Inherit the Wind") has the difficult task of dramatizing an important historical moment.

Moving performances come from an all-star cast that includes Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Judy Garland and Montgomery Clift. 18398165

NFL Football

The climate will certainly be different, and the Green Bay Packers hope the final score tonight against St. Louis follows suit. A shootout in their home dome went the Rams' way last year against the Pack, as quarterback Marc Bulger aired it out with three TD passes in a 34-24 win. But throwing could prove more difficult in the nighttime Wisconsin air. HDTV614078
