| A great moment of French TV
Stellio Lorenzi,who passed away some years ago ,was one of the French masters of the made -for-TV work.He was interested in history and his films often dealt with characters from the past."The Rosenberg" is a different matter since it was not part of the French history.This is to my knowledge the first movie which was made about these victims of McCarthysim.Sydney Lumet made one in the eighties ("Daniel" ) but the names were changed and their story was something from the past which their son remembered ,and Ethel Rosenberg was featured in the made -for-TV "Citizen Cohn- (James Woods 's fans remember) .

Stellio Lorenzi's work is a very long one,divided into two parts.The first one is interspersed with TV news of the time -I remember actor Robert Taylor appears and says that the commies should all be killed-.The second one depicts the trial ,the final days and the attempts a lot of countries around the world made to save them from the electric chair.Alain Decaux who wrote the screenplay is a famous French historian.Gilles Segal and Marie- José Nat gave moving performances.
