Shoes of the Fisherman


In 1963 the movie “The Shoes of the Fisherman” with Anthony Quinn came out and told about the election of the Pope.

How acurate was it in showing the process in execting a Pope?

It also was very interesting because over 10 years before Pope John Paul II it showed the election of a Cardinal from behind the Iron Curtain to be Pope.

Yours in Jesus,
