Sanctuary of Fear

producer chesterton series mary

(NBC, 4/23/1979, 120 mins). An amiable Manhattan parish priest with a bent for crime-solving comes to the aid of a damsel in distress, a young actress who is innocently embroiled in a series of bizarre incidents and cannot find a sympathetic ear among the police. This pilot for a proposed”Father Brown” series updated the G.K. Chesterton creation, introduced in 1911 in a collection of short stories, who played the detective fictionally through 1935 in pastoral England. The character was transplanted to New York City of the 1970s for this movie, originally to have been shown as “Father Brown, Detective” (the title used when Alec Guinness played the part in the 1954 film), and then was switched to “Sanctuary of Death” before its final name was settled on. Subsequently titled “The Girl in the Park.”
