'I Accuse!'
This week’s mystery movie has been the 1957 MGM picture “I Accuse!” The film stars Jose Ferrer (who also directed), Anton Walbrook, Viveca Lindfors, Leo Genn, Emlyn Williams, David Farrar, Donald Wolfit and Herbert Lom.  The screenplay was by Gore Vidal, from a book by Nicholas Halasz.

“I Accuse!” It has never been commercially released on VHS or DVD.

The film was photographed by F.A. “Freddie” Young, who won Academy Awards for “Lawrence of Arabia,” “Dr. Zhivago” and “Ryan’s Daughter.”  It was released in CinemaScope with “process lenses by Panavision.”

'I Accuse'

According to the IMDB entry, “I Accuse!” was filmed in standard Academy aspect ratio and then printed in CinemaScope with the images cropped as the “process lenses by Panavision” would tend to indicate. I’m not an expert on the matter and will leave it to others to investigate this matter further.
