Quotes from

Inspector Valentine: Well?
Inspector Dubois: He is going to the wine harvest, and the grape waits for no man.
Inspector Valentine: Nor does Father Brown.


Father Brown: Where would a wise man hide a leaf? In a forest. Where would a wise man hide a cross? In a forest of crosses. We have a forest of crosses ready-made for us. A forest of priests; a black forest, you might say.


Inspector Valentine: You'd've made things much easier for us both if you'd told us what you know of Flambeau.
Father Brown: I cannot tell you what I do not know. All I know is that he walks upon two legs and his head grows above his shoulders.

Facts about

Alec Guinness was spotted in costume when walking home through the French countryside. A young boy ran up to him, yelling "Mon père! Mon père!" ("My father! My father!") Guinness did not speak French, so he could not correct the young boy's mistake, but was touched that the young boy apparently immediately bonded to him on the assumption that he was a priest. Soon after the film was released, Guinness converted to Catholicism.
