Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: alt.tcm.turner.com - IMDb: This short starts with a short biography of Nostradamus and highlights some of his prophecies that came true in his own day (e.g., telling a young priest that many years later he would become Pope Sixtus V). Then we come to the present and learn that Nostradamus' writings foretold WWI. Several of his prophecies are then applied to the events leading to WWII, as well as to current war events (David Glagovsky).
