During a blackout, three train passengers arrive at Chillingbourne in Kent. Londoner Alison Smith is a feisty representative of the Women's Land Army (aka the "land girls"). Bob Johnson is an American soldier whose intended destination was Canterbury. Peter Gibbs is a classical music student who worked in peacetime as a cinema organist. As they make their way through the village, Alison has something poured on to her hair by an unseen attacker. She is the latest victim of the Glue Man, a nocturnal rogue who harasses young women who date American soldiers. She, along with Bob and Peter, vow to track him down. Ostensibly a mystery, the film is principally a portrait of the bucolic English countryside during wartime

Michael Andersons schauprächtige Verfilmung des Erfolgromans von Morris L. West beeindruckt nicht zuletzt durch Anthony Quinns schauspielerische Leistung, mit der er einen 'modernen' Papst glaubwürdig verkörpert. Kyril Lakota, Erzbischof von Lemberg, ist als politischer Häftling durch viele Niederungen des Lebens gegangen, als er nach 20 Jahren aus einem Arbeitslager in Sibirien freikommt. Sein Glaube und seine Menschlichkeit sind dadurch jedoch nur gefestigt worden. Als Kyril im Vatikan eintrifft, ernennt ihn der Papst zum Kardinal. Seine Kollegen, die Kardinäle Rinaldi und Leone, lernen ihn schätzen; er selber fühlt sich zu dem jungen Theologen David Telemond hingezogen. Dieser Priester vertritt in Anlehnung an Teilhard de Chardin Auffassungen, die ihn mit den römischen Kirchenbehörden in Konflikt gebracht haben. Als der Papst stirbt, geht Kyril aus dem Konklave überraschend als Nachfolger hervor. Seine ungewöhnliche Art befremdet bald die Traditionalisten in der Kurie. Seine erste große Bewährungsprobe kommt, als er sich entschließt, in einer gefährlichen politischen Situation als Vermittler nach Moskau zu reisen, wo er mit dem sowjetischen Ministerpräsidenten Kamenev und dem chinesischen Parteivorsitzenden Peng zusammentrifft. In China herrscht eine schwere Hungersnot; die daraus resultierenden Spannungen drohen, einen neuen Weltkrieg auszulösen. Kyril gelingt es zunächst, eine Zuspitzung de Konflikts zu verhindern. Die Krönung seiner Bemühungen erfolgt bei der feierlichen Amtseinführung, als er der Welt verkündet, die Kirche werde ihr ganzes Vermögen zur Linderung des Hungers hingeben
