I watched The Detective yesterday. I taped it when it was on TCM. It is loosely based on a short story called The Blue Cross by G.K. Chesterton. It has Alec Guinness, Joan Greenwood, Peter Finch, Cecil Parker, Bernard Lee, and Gérard Oury in it.
I love watching the Father Brown show on PBS. When I saw this was going to be on TCM, I decided to taped it and watch it. In this movie, Father Brown is arrested for burglary. The police wouldn’t believe that he just talked the the real burglar out of stealing. He was let go though. Then he finds out a thief was going to steal a cross he has in his church. The thief is the famous Flambeau. Instead of letting the police protect the cross, he tries to protect it himself. He meets a another priest which ends up being Flambeau. Father Brown tries to reason with Flambeau. Father Brown does get the cross back.
I did like this movie. Next week I’m watching Wonder Woman.
