Film - I Confess (1953) - Presented by Terry Meehan
Father Logan (Montgomery Clift), a devout Catholic priest at St. Marie’s in Quebec City, hears the confession of a man who says he has committed a murder. The Seal of Confession, a powerful plot device courtesy of the Catholic Church, prevents the priest from revealing the identity of the murderer. Unfortunately, the victim was the husband of Ruth Grandfort (Anne Baxter), Father Logan’s pre-celibacy paramour. Inspector Larrue (Karl Malden) is following the clues, all of which lead straight to the sacristy. Terry Meehan continues his series on Hitchcock in the Fifties Part 1, introducing each film with an original video presentation, followed by audience reaction and a lively discussion.
