|Kenneth More||Actor,Father Brown|
Heaven help the murderer who crosses paths with G. K. Chesterton's beloved detective, Father Brown. Seemingly distracted and even a bit eccentric, 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 Chesteron's unlikely hero in these six classic television tales, which originally aired in the U.K. on ITV in 1974 (they were originally telecast on PBS's Mystery! series here in the States). Episodes on this set include: "The Actor and the Alibi" (originally aired Nov. 14, 1974); "The Quick One" (Nov. 21, 1974); "The Man with Two Beards" (Nov. 28, 1974); "The Head of Caesar" (Dec. 5, 1974); "The Arrow of Heaven" (Dec. 12, 1974); and "The Secret Garden" (Dec. 19, 1974). Extras include a G. K. Chesterton bio and cast filmographies.
