I Confess (1953)

I’m still on my francophile high. I Confess is an Alfred Hitchcock movie filmed on location in Quebec City, Canada.  I’ve been to Quebec City a few times.  My last trip was studying French for 6 weeks at Laval University.  This film brought back lovely memories sans murder, of course.

Montgomery Cliff looks so handsome as the priest accused of a murder he didn’t commit but knows who the killer is because of a confession.  How could anyone that handsome be a Catholic priest?  Understandably ex-flame played by Anne Baxter isn’t over him.  

The censors wouldn’t allow the priest to be hung as  in the play so you can imagine the Hollywood ending.
