A good effort
This is a very good movie, well made and well acted. However, if you've read the book, you're going to be disappointed.
The Keys of the Kingdom
- Dashiell Barnes
A film that is visually beautiful with a sincere story. Peck debuts his unbiased morals that would later be present in future films, earning him his first nomination. The settings of China are magnificently shot, which is combined with Alfred Newman's score. A sensitive story with a few dull moments. I give it a 3.5/5.
A movie to capture your heart
- Kevin Henderson
Beautiful movie. Happened to catch it one Sunday morning. Knew nothing about it. The billing of Gregory Peck, Vincent Price, and Roddy McDowell kept me hanging about for a bit. Next thing I knew I was completely immersed in the story. Near the end I blamed the teary eyes on some active allergies (it's early spring after all), but bottom line is this is a terrific move with depth and soul.

The Keys of the Kingdom
- Jeanna Bailey
Gregory Peck has always been my favorite actor. His performance in The Keys of the Kingdom was superior to any other of that year in my humble opinion. Having been raised Catholic, I remember those young priests as being very handsome, humble and generously / graciously kind. The character that Mr. Peck portrayed was a beautiful person and those types of folks cleanse this planet we live on."The Keys of the Kingdom" is a wonderful portrayal of kindness, courage and the tenacity of the human spirit. I felt sad when the movie ended as though I had known the character played by Mr. Peck all of my life. "No one can explain pain or love or fear of God as well as we can feel them" will always be my most beloved phrase.
This movie was exelent and i enjoyed Gregory Peck's roll. I was rather impressed. The cast was a good one and the movie also had some humor in it
When I first saw this movie I fell in love with Gregory Peck. The different trials Father Chisholm faces throughout the movie makes him quite a hero. I also recommend reading the book (A.J. Cronin) for an in-depth and gripping story.
