REVIEWS:





"In the role of Sister Benedict, Ingrid Bergman is exquisitely serene, radiantly beautiful and soft-spoken—the perfect picture of an idealized nun. And there are moments in which she glows with a tenderness and warmth. .... As Father Chuck, Mr. Crosby is—well, you know—the same easy, confident Bing, tossing off slangy jokes and soft-soap with the sincerity of a practiced hand. .... Considering the film's sectarian nature, the most amusing and critically pertinent remark is passed by Father O'Malley when a student named Luther is introduced to him. "Luther?" remarks the startled father, "How did he get in here?" Somehow
that innocent question struck us as being quite acute."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 7, 1945
