Ultimate DVD - 09/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Gregory Peck plays Chisholm, and won an Oscar nomination for his performance, as did Alfred Newman for the score."

Description by OLDIES.com:

A marvelous spectacle spanning six decades and two continents, The Keys Of The Kingdom is the glorious epic that introduced audiences to screen newcomer Gregory Peck.

After losing his parents and his childhood sweetheart to tragedy, Francis Chisholm (Peck) joins the priesthood and devotes himself to a life of service and compassion. But Chisholm's unorthodox beliefs raise eyebrows among his superiors, especially Bishop Angus Mealy (Vincent Price). And when he is sent to the farthest reaches of China to rebuild an abandoned mission, Chisholm faces his greatest challenge of all: to tame a hostile land, win over a superstitious people and save his parish from an invading army. Nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Actor (Peck), The Keys Of The Kingdom is a "towering film stamped with greatness" (The Independent).

Product Description:

Life story of a priest who aids a war-torn Chinese mission, based on the novel by A.J. Cronin. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Actor--Gregory Peck.

Plot Synopsis:

This adaptation of A. J. Cronin's novel explores the life of Francis Chisholm, a priest devoted to missionary work. Chisholm's story is told from his childhood days in Scotland, to his experiences preaching the gospel and helping the poor in China, on through his later years. Along the way, we see the man's tireless devotion to his cause in spite of such obstacles as a civil war and an unyielding mother superior who often disagrees with his techniques.
