Never Forget (1991)


never-forget “Don’t you think you’re kind of over reacting about a dumb letter? There’s a lot of nut cases running around shootin’ their mouths off.” – Bernie

Brief Synopsis – A Holocaust survivor is taunted by a Holocaust denier advocate group anf decides to take them to court. Based on a true story.

My Take on it – This is a great made for TV movie because it really shows us how a real event can spiral to a point where a person is forced to defend himself, his memories and his faith against a group of bullies who wish to demean it all.

Leonard Nimoy is great in this kind of role because he shows his range by playing this kind of character instead of what we are use to seeing him play.

Despite being a made for TV film, they do a great job getting its point and message across about tolerance and fighting for what’s right, no matter the cost.

I have always been a  fan of Dabney Coleman and have preferred hos roles on the side of good and he does a great job here playing a lawyer helping Nimoy’s character fight the fight in court in order to stop the bullish ways of the group taunting him.

Bottom Line – Nimoy is great in this kind of role. Has the aura of being made for tv but still gets its point and message across extremely well. Loved seeing Coleman on the side of good which was never his usual side. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The real Mel Mermelstein plays his own father in this film (From IMDB)
