The Boys from Brazil Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Gregory Peck hams it up big time in this 1978 thriller based on Ira Levin's bestselling novel. Peck plays an old German Nazi behind a mysterious series of murders, the investigation of which leads to an astonishing plot to create the Fourth Reich. Laurence Olivier is equally outrageous as a Nazi hunter who stumbles onto the scheme. Director Franklin Schaffner (Planet of the Apes) doesn't make any bones about the preposterousness of the story or of his legendary stars' performances, and a viewer is advised not to push too deeply into this tall tale for cautionary meaning. The film is a bit bloody--particularly unnerving in a climactic scene involving some attack dogs under the command of a young but familiar-looking monster.

Academy Awards

The Boys from Brazil received Academy Awards nominations for Actor (Lord Laurence Olivier), Film Editing (Robert E. Swink), Music Scoring Awards (Best Original Score; Jerry Goldsmith).
