Tuesday, 26 March 2019 | Admin
The story takes place during the Napoleonic era, in Spain, a young trainee Nun (Carroll Baker) falls in love with a handsome British soldier (Roger Moore) who is recovering with others of his regiment after being wounded. Before leaving, he asks her to leave the convent and marry him. The postulant, devoted to the statue of the Virgin Mary, asks her for a heavenly sign and leaves when nothing happens. Then the statue of the Virgin descends from its pedestal.....
Trivia: Natalie Wood and Dirk Bogarde both turned down the Moore/Baker roles. Sadly, though the film gained in popularity over the years it flopped on release not helped by the release at the same time of the Charlton Heston classic "Ben Hur"
