“Gli Uomini Non Guardano Il Cielo”: The Only Film About St. Pius X
I receive from reader “Papapiusdecimus” (whom I thank from the heart for the kind words) an extremely interesting link, published above.
This appears to be the only film ever made about the great pope St. Pius X. Googling around, the year of production appears to be 1951. De Gasperi was Prime Minister, and Pius XII was Pope. A dream team by any standard of today, and probably of any day.
The names involved in the production of this movie make clear, even before seeing it , this is a quality production.
Unfortunately, this is youtube format, and no subtitles.
It appears the movie was also dubbed in English, title “The Secret Conclave”.
Those of you who have Netflix might be able to see it, says here. Please can someone of my readers with Netflix subscription let me know if this is available.
If any reader can indicate where they might be found this would be wonderful, but of course I understand this must be nearly impossible. I will try to discover whether the film was dubbed in other languages (French perhaps? Or maybe Spanish? They were Christian countries back then… ).
I will try to have the thing downloaded on a USB key and put on my TV. I doubt very much the quality will be satisfying, but I want to say it after I have tried.
Those of you who don’t understand the language will, I am sure, at least enjoy its beautiful sound..
Please do not forget three Hail Mary for our good reader Papapiusdecimus, who – I think – deserves them entirely.
