"Captures the tension and bravery of an audacious raid on the centre of Nazi Germany's industrial complex ... Split into two distinct sections, the film deals first with the fraught, but ultimately successful development of a new weapon by Dr. Barnes N. Wallis. The second and pacier section deals with the mission itself during the British raid on the Ruhr Dams, and its associated costs for the enemy and the British airmen."--Container

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
