I Confess

A Alfred Hitchcock movie...recommended by hubby-dearest and Catholic Answers.









































The following review is from Netflix:

1953  NR   95 minutes

In this memorable Alfred Hitchcock thriller, all Father Michael Logan (Montgomery Clift) wants to be is a good priest, but his calling is made more complicated after someone confesses a murder to him and he's subsequently blamed for the death. The fastest way to clear his name is to divulge what he knows, but doing so would break his vows as a clergyman and alienate members of his flock who trust he will keep their secrets private.


Cast:Montgomery Clift, Anne Baxter, Karl Malden, Brian Aherne, O. E. Hasse, Dolly Haas, Charles AndreDirector:Alfred Hitchcock

  1. I love this movie! I haven't seen it in years, but I always thought it should be used to teach about confession and the seal of the confessional. I have told the story when teaching confession, but never shown the movie.
