The Keys of the Kingdom

The Essentials
Francis Chisholm (younger) Lovely adaptation of Cronin's novel about the life of a missionary. Gregory Peck plays the lead; our hero represents his youth.
Well worth seeing, tho most of our hero's scenes were sadly clipped. Read the book and use your imagination for best McDowall effect.
