5.0 out of 5 stars The Scarlet And The Black, 3 July 2003
This review is from: The Scarlet And The Black [DVD] (DVD)
This is the story of a catholic monsignor (Hugh O'Flaherty) who risks his life and jepordises the Vatican in his battle to hide escaped POWs in Nazi occupied Rome.
Based on a true story, this film shows the dedication and courage of one man to do what he believes is right - no matter what!
Gregory Peck gives a fantastic performance as the feisty Irish Monsignor, as does Christopher Plummer as Colonel Herbert Kappler the Nazi officer who is obsessed with the capture of O'Flaherty, Kappler cannot arrest him as o'flaherty is a high ranking official in the vatican. Kappler tries to catch O'Flaherty hiding POWs so that he can arrest him. O'Flaherty is badgering kappler until breaking point, evading his hunters in this gritty and thoroughly enjoyable film which keeps you on the edge of your seat until the final scene.
Sir John Gielgud also gives a brilliant and moving performance as his holiness the Pope trying to be neutral and also guiding o'flaherty.
Based on the novel, The Scarlet Pimpernal of the Vatican
