MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL is a 1951 film adaptation of T.S. Eliot's verse play about the Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas a Becket, his conflicts with King Henry II over the rights and privileges of the Church, and his ultimate death.

Violence

There is a brief bloody image of the aftermath of a violent attack. A character is struck with several swords at the same time and, although the impacts are not shown, there is subsequent sight of the man's bloodied face and hair as well as blood pooled under his head.

There is infrequent use of very mild bad language ('damn', 'damned').
