Through the story of a priest who rises to the rank of Cardinal within the Roman Catholic Church, this film questions the Church’s position on key issues, from war and politics to inter-faith marriages and racism. Bass’ challenge was to devise a symbol free of ecclesiastical associations, lest potential viewers understood the film to be narrowly religious. In a boldly modern composition, the gigantic black capital letters of “THE”, representing the towering authority of the Roman Catholic Church, dwarf the power of the word “CARDINAL”. The backward-leaning tilt of the monumental “THE”, together with the large block of solid black below, hint at a dark side to this movie.
