The Brothers Karamazov is a 1958 film made by MGM, based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel of the same name. It was directed by Richard Brooks and produced by Pandro S. Berman. The screenplay was by Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein and Richard Brooks. It was entered into the 1958 Cannes Film Festival. The story follows Fyodor, the patriarch of the Karamazov family and his sons. When he tries to decide an heir, the tensions between the Brothers of the film run high, leading to infighting and murder. The three brothers are played by Yul Brynner, Richard Basehart, and William Shatner, the latter in a screen debut.
