The Cardinal in 8 minutes

The film won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Drama.

"Youthful pride. Yearnings of the flesh. Moments of doubt. The courage of conviction. All enter into a dedicated American’s decades-long rise from priesthood to the leadership elite of the College of Cardinals. Otto Preminger presents The Cardinal, winner of a Golden Globe Best Picture Award and nominated for six 1963 Academy Awards, including Best Director. Typical of Preminger’s films, The Cardinal is packed with stars and issues. Tom Tryon, Carol Lynley, Ossie Davis, Burgess Meredith and Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner John Huston are players in a rich storyline embracing interfaith marriage, abortion, racism and war."
