Omar Sharif shows a warm, sensitive side in this film, playing the role of a young priest torn between obligations of personal morality and the official laws of government.

The drama is too diffuse for excitement.

Fred Zinnemann has done it again.

Gregory Peck is appropriately more gruff and guttural than usual in this interesting drama.

August 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Fred Zinnemann's Behold a Pale Horse, from a novel by Emeric Pressburger, isn't pretentious but just dull: dully, creakingly made.

July 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The film's best asset is the stirring performance by Gregory Peck as an aging revolutionary.
