Editorial Reviews

A Belgian nun, Sister Ann is sent to another order where she's at first committed to helping troubled souls like, Nichole and little Dominic. When Father Clementi hears Sister Ann's uplifting singing style, he takes her to a talent contest. Suddenly, Sister Ann is signed to a record deal and everyone is listening to her light-hearted songs. Sister Ann is unprepared for her new found fame (like appearing on the "Ed Sullivan" show) and unwanted side-effects, including a wrongful attraction to an old friend, Robert.

I couldn't let the other review of this gem to remain the only one, since this is one of the genuinely great films from my childhood, on par with The Wizard of Oz. Granted, it can seem a rather sappy, semi-biographical account of a real-life nun, made to appeal to the tender heart while making a political point, but this movie is just too good to have anyone be swayed from buying it or watching it just because of one mediocre review for it on this site.

The Singing Nun is a movie for those of us who enjoyed the musicals of the 1960s and 70s - Damn Yankees, South Pacific, Sound of Music, etc. None of them could be made today and appeal to today's rather jaded societal expectations, but all of them have the ability to transport us to a different place and time, to lift us both mentally and spirtually. I stupidly discarded my overused LP of this gem years ago and am thrilled that it is now available on DVD, as it is too seldom shown on TV even with 200 cable channels available. The music is wonderful, the performances all first rate and the movie well-worth watching. Debbie Reynolds shines in the title role and has been one of the best, true "golden-era" stars all of her career. Rarely does someone who can act and sing so beautifully come along and this film was a fine vehicle for both of those talents for this wonderful actress.

Since it is not To Kill a Mockingbird or Moonstruck I can't give it five stars. However, for it's genre and quality, four stars IS five stars! I can't imagine anyone with a heart or ear for good music not enjoying this wonderful movie.

Nuns certainly were popular in the 1960s! Sally Field flew into living-rooms all over the world with TV's "The Flying Nun", Rosalind Russell tamed serial prankster Hayley Mills in "The Trouble with Angels"; and, in 1966's THE SINGING NUN, Debbie Reynolds starred in a sugary-sweet screen biography of Belgium's famed Sister Jeanine Deckers (aka "Sister Smile").

Armed with a scooter and her trusty guitar "Sister Adele", Sister Ann--played with plenty of verve by Debbie Reynolds--travels to her latest posting at the Salvation missionary in Belgium. Sister Ann's community work is forced to take a backseat when her inspirational songs (including "Dominique", "Beyond the Stars", "Brother John" and "It's a Miracle") join the hit-parade and suddenly Ann is an overnight singing celebrity. Ricardo Montalban, Agnes Moorehead, Greer Garson, Katharine Ross, Juanita Moore and Chad Everett co-star.

In stark contrast to the peppy character played by Reynolds in THE SINGING NUN, the real life of "Sister Smile" was far from perfect. After leaving the sisterhood and coming out as a lesbian, she was plagued with financial problems (involved in the copyright of her songs) and later died with her partner in a bizarre suicide love-pact.

Warner's DVD is bare-bones apart from the trailer, but does feature a lovely widescreen print. Available exclusively in the Warner Brothers Classic Holiday Collection, Vol. 1 (Boys Town / A Christmas Carol [1938] / Christmas in Connecticut / The Singing Nun).

This is a great movie about the value of caring for others in spite of how they respond & in spite of our mistakes as we try to show we care. I recommend it for anyone who is ministering to others. We take what God has given us & let Him use it to bring Life & Hope to others.

A happy, feel good movie for a general audience. They don't make movies like this anymore. I wish they would.

The story is about a young Catholic Nun with a singing talent. She sing her prayers very nicely. The Catholic church endorses and promotes her album for revenue bringing in millions for the Church. A music talent scout finds ger and wants to make her a Pop Star. She must decide if she will pursue a singing career or be a missionary. Good sound and visual quality. A good story for the whole family. Very nostalic for anyone whole lived in that period. Ed Sullivan is great in this movie. I wish they would have had a commentary or "the making of" piece.

My Mom loves Debbie Reynold's voice and we both enjoy watching Chad Everett. Good price on it, good story, and lots of good wholesome scenes that are hard to find in movies today. Buy it; I bet you won't regret it! :)
