THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM

Dir. John M. Stahl (USA: 1944), 137 min.   Based on the 1941 novel The Keys of the Kingdom is the chronicle of a young Scottish priest, Father Chisholm, who is sent to China to establish a Catholic parish among the non-Christian Chinese from 1878 to 1938.  Over the sixty year period Father Chisholm comes across hostility, isolation, disease and poverty which both humble him, but also drives his determination to succeed.
