"This dvd gives the impression that its a two disk set of John Thaw in a world war two movie. He is shown in a priest's habit next to a German soldier. In fact its two different dvd's one is Monsignor Renaud and the other is wartime black and white newsreels. Nowhere in the description does it mention Monsignor Renard. I already own this dvd and now I have two. Amazon says if you blow up the front of the box you will see in small print Monsignor Renard is mentioned. I don't know anyone who blows up the front of a dvd before buying."
