On June 19, 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the so-called "atomic
spies" of the 1950s, were executed at Sing Sing Prison. Their death
only fostered the belief of many Americans that the Rosenbergs were
innocent, victims of the anti-Communist paranoia of the 50s, rather
than spies who had stolen atomic secrets for the Russians. In his
landmark documentary The Unquiet Death of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg,
Alvin Goldstein looks at the facts and procedures of the Rosenberg
case, as well as the climate of the times, interviewing jurors, FBI
agents, lawyers for both sides, and the two sons of the Rosenbergs.
Using documentary and newsreel footage, Goldstein creates a moving
human drama, a "thoroughly researched, solidly developedsuperb
recreation of history, painting with bold strokes the temper of the
times" (Boston Globe).
