Description by OLDIES.com:

Jennifer Jones won the Academy Award for her screen debut in this heartening film about a young girl whose wondrous visions inspired a nation. The film also won Oscars in 1943 for Best Cinematography, Music (Scoring) and Art Direction/Interior Decoration.

Bernadette Soubirous (Jones) is a sickly 14-year-old girl who sees a vision of a "beautiful lady," and never suffers from her illness again. Moreover, a fountain suddenly materializes near her vision that seems to heal visitors who bathe in it. Unspoiled by her apparent gift, Bernadette nonetheless suffers the prejudices of those around her in this extraordinary, inspiring film that also stars Vincent Price, Charles Bickford and Lee J. Cobb.

Product Description:

Jennifer Jones won a Golden Globe and an Oscar for her screen debut in this true story. Jones plays young French peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous, who sees a vision of a "beautiful lady" near her home in Lourdes in 1858. Based on the novel of the same name by Franz Werfel, THE SONG OF BERNADETTE explores Bernadette's trials and tribulations from her impoverished family to her difficulties at school to the derision her visions bring upon her and at last to her affliction with bone-marrow cancer. Under the incisive eye of director Henry King, the film is seen through Bernadette's perspective but at the same time focuses upon the effect that Bernadette has upon her family, her champions, and her detractors. The acting is excellent, and no detail has gone untouched in the art direction, costumes, and cinematography. Best of all, THE SONG OF BERNADETTE stands among a rare group of Hollywood films in which visual integrity is matched step for step with thematic zeal.

Plot Synopsis:

In 1858, in the French town of Lourdes, a spiritual peasant girl sees a vision of the Virgin Mary in a cave. Inspired, she mines the cave until she hits water--holy water that will cure the ailments of those who believe. The citizens of Lourdes react to the situation in a variety of ways, however, ranging from amazement to anger. Academy Award Nominations: 12, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay. Academy Awards: 4, including Best Actress--Jennifer Jones.
