Synopsis
In his first TV starring role (after having debuted as Abraham Lincoln in the miniseries "The Blue and the Gray"), Gregory Peck is the real-life Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, a Vatican official responsible for concealing thousands of allied POW escapees in German-occupied Rome. Christopher Plummer is the head of the S.S. under whose nose the escapes were being pulled off and with whom Msgr. O'Flaherty played an intriguing cat and mouse game. (O'Flaherty died in 1963.) Emmy Award nominations went to the film's editor, sound mixer and graphic designer. It also won the top prize, the Golden Gate Award, at the San Francisco International Film Festival, and was one of the winners of the prestigious Christopher Award in 1984 for distinguished TV programming.
