Heir To An Execution (2004)
The 1951 conviction and 1953 execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg on charges of supplying nuclear information to the Soviets remains one of the most controversial cases in U.S. legal history. Through declassified documents, archival footage and interviews, granddaughter Ivy Meeropol examines the facts behind the trial and the accompanying "Red Scare" hysteria; how testimony by David Greenglass, Ethel's brother, saved his own life while dooming Ethel's; and how the couple's actions affected their two sons and the rest of the family. 99 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
