I like this DVD series Set 1 and Set 2 . It was produced to appear the 1920's. It is a different actor playing Father Brown (FB) than the other Father Brown series which takes place in the 1950's. The 1920 version has FB played by Kenneth More. This 1920's series sticks to the true script written by the writer closely. FB catches the clues left that the police detectives miss. FB has a keen understanding of the human condition. FB is very good at finding the motive for the actions of others. FB finds and reveals the hidden truths. FB is a kindly, cassocked effective crime-solver. In the 1920 series FB is very good friends with an ex-criminal, now a private detective, Hercule Flambeau (HF). HF is good friends with the police officer; thus, FB is invited to many mysteries to solve. About the author, Gilbert Keith Chesterton (GKC): GKC converted to Christianity as an adult. In 1922 GKC confirmed his Catholic beliefs. GKC was born May 29, 1874 in Kensington, London, England. GKC died June 14, 1936 from natural causes. GKC wrote 80 novels, some plays and poetry, 200 short stories, 4,000 essays. He was well known while he was alive. The 48 FB series was part of the 200 short stories.
