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.

May 9, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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

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

Peck is very good, Quinn is superb, and everyone involved with this powerful movie should take a bow.
