Starring: Kenneth More, Dennis Burgess
G.K. Chesterton's kindly, cassocked crime-solver
Heaven help the murderer who crosses paths with G.K. Chesterton's beloved detective, Father Brown. Seemingly distracted and even a bit dotty, the kindly priest always manages to confound criminals with his keen observations and inescapable logic. He prefers to go unnoticed, dismissed as irrelevant -- until the moment of truth, when he unravels the most devious schemes.
Kenneth More truly inhabits Chesterton's unlikely hero in these six classic television tales, as seen on the PBS Mystery! series. The New York Times lauded the series for "capturing Chesterton's distinctive spirit and sense of humor" and Kenneth More for playing Father Brown with "low-keyed but clearly defined perfection." You'll surely agree that the good father's sly wit, benign manner, and steel-trap mind never fail to delight.
