Alec Guinness stars as Father Brown, full-time priest and part-time sleuth, in this comic mystery based on the character created by novelist G.K. Chesterton. When Father Brown is entrusted with transporting a valuable religious artefact from London to Rome, he's understandably upset when it's stolen from him. Brown has reason to believe that a notorious international thief lifted the cross he was carrying, and the good Father finds himself on a dual-purpose mission: to recover the stolen goods and to compel the thief to repent before God. The supporting cast includes Peter Finch, Joan Greenwood, and Cecil Parker as the Bishop.

Clerical comedy/mystery as Alec Guinness stars as G.K. Chesterton's legendary detective minister Father Brown in the struggle to track down some international thieves. When Father Brown (Guinness) hears that Flambeau (Peter Finch), international art thief of high repute, plans to pinch a priceless cross once owned by St. Augustine, he delights in the challenge. The cross is to be transported to Rome and this is when Flambeau plans his daring theft in the guise of a priest himself. Father Brown, however, is an unabashed master of disguise and gets between the dastardly crook and the costly cross without breaking sweat.
