THE SCAPEGOAT/ FATHER BROWN Synopsis

THE SCAPEGOAT. Director Robert Hamer and Gore Vidal adapted Daphne du Maurier’s novel for this intriguing mystery, and du Maurier herself suggested Alec Guinness for the dual lead roles of a British teacher and a French nobleman, look-alikes who meet by chance and exchange identities. Bette Davis costars. FATHER BROWN (aka THE DETECTIVE). Alec Guinness portrays G. K. Chesterton’s mild-mannered but very shrewd detective Father Brown. Pursuing a dapper jewel thief (Peter Finch) through England and France, Brown is as eager to save the man’s soul as he is to recover the loot. Constantly amusing, with a formidable cast that also includes Joan Greenwood and Bernard Lee (M in the early Bond films).
