Rating: B- -- Well acted by Celeste Holme and Lorette Young as French nuns in the U.S., this sentimental religious melodrama was very popular in 1949, garnering 7 Oscar nominations. Full Review

The sad life of a Negro in Hollywood comes clear here. Dooley Wilson, who scored one of the screen's most sensational debuts in Humphrey Bogart's Casablanca, is here reduced to a lowly chauffeur... [his] fine talent is unseen and unheard. Full Review

Rating: 54/100 -- Surely a film that shows both its age and its seams, Come to the Stable nonetheless remains a testament to old Hollywood's ability to sell anything it put its mind to. Full Review

Description by

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.
