Straight forward made for TV Movie

Author: David Ogilvie (daveogilvie@yahoo.com) from Glasgow, UK
20 February 2003



Ralph Waite plays a priest wrongly charged of doing robberies of convenience stores. Jerry Zaks plays a Jewish lawyer who takes his case and sets about proving his innocence. Supposedly a true story it's a by the numbers movie. Waite is his usual appealing self, the sort of guy who reminds you of your grand father. Zaks, who I've never seen before,(looks a bit like Peter McNicol) is perhaps the star of the show with a good performance. The film is worth watching once if you like watching Ralph Waite, but it is perhaps 10 minutes to long.

Pagano passes away

7/10
Author: filmlou from United States
17 February 2007

Just a brief note -- Fr. Bernie Pagano, the subject of this made for TV movie, passed away in December 2006 while in retirement in New Jersey. To this day, both the Delaware Attorney General's Office and the Delaware State Police believe that Father Bernie was truly the culprit in the "Gentleman Bandit" robberies and that Ronald Clouser was remunerated (by someone) to take the rap.

Although Pagano was eventually banished to a tiny parish on the Eastern shore of Maryland, the story of the "Gentleman Bandit" pales in comparison to the recent Diocese of Wilmington (DE) scandal involving pedophile priests, sexual abuse and criminal activity.

Bernie -- we'll miss you.
