Description
Gregory Peck had made scattered television appearances before, but the 3-hour Scarlet and the Black was his first starring assignment in a made-for-TV movie. Peck plays Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, a real-life cleric who, during World War II, rescued thousands of escaped POWs from the Gestapo. Christopher Plummer co-stars as the Rome-based SS official who tries to catch O'Flaherty in the act. The film won several industry and religious awards, and earned three Emmy nominations. Based on J. P. Gallagher's book The Scarlet Pimpernel in the Vatican, The Scarlet and the Black premiered on February 2, 1983.

          I hate to admit this but I was anti-Catholic,(not the people but the religion) until I saw this movie. While it is not "religious" you can really see
          God working through this Priest by his compassion and dedication. A must see for all!

            Caught part of this movie a couple years ago and found it intriguing. Surprised to see it available of DVD. Enjoyed watching the entire movie. Found it very informative on an aspect of WWII to which I was unaware.

              A great movie of World War II. How The Vatican secretly helped those in need and kept them hidden from the Nazis'. Especially one marvelous priest portrayed by Gregory Peck.

                True story of heroism during WW2 not just for the priest, but for ordinary folks. Risking their lives to protect Allied soldiers.
                Would any of us do that today?

                    Comments about this product:

                    One of the best movies I have ever seen. This Catholic priest had courage and took action at a time when it was needed most. Based on the true story of this Vatican Priest during the Nazi occupation of Rome, Italy in 1943.

                    Everyone should see this one. Gregory Peck's performance is his best.
