Description by OLDIES.com:

A heartwarming family film concerning the exploits of two French nuns who come to America, setting up operations in a local stable, in order to raise money for a children's hospital.

Product Description:

A pair of French nuns fulfill their promise to God by moving to New England to found a children's hospital. A pleasingly warm movie based on a story by Clare Boothe Luce. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Actress-- Loretta Young and Best Supporting Actress--Celeste Holm.

Plot Synopsis:

When two French nuns relocate to the little town of Bethlehem, Connecticut, they try to improve life in their new community. Overcoming the objections of a stern bishop who comes to view them as an irresistible force, the sisters acquire land from a notorious racketeer. And then, they acquire funding for their venture from one of their former detractors -- a cynical songwriter who becomes sympathetic to their cause, after he learns that his hit song is derived from a Gregorian chant. Through a combination of hard work, prayer and even some skillful gambling, the nuns finally reach their goal, and succeed in establishing a new children's hospital.
