From 1966....The Trouble with Angels...an American comedy film about the adventures of two girls in an all-girls Catholic school run by nuns. The film was directed by Ida Lupino and stars Hayley Mills (her first post-Disney film role), Rosalind Russell and June Harding. Wonderful performances by all---you can see just one of them---a more serious moment----entitled I FOUND SOMETHING BETTER---by clicking here.
(FYI: Your editor cannot recommend the sequel which feels very dated, stilted and forced.)
The movie is set at St. Francis Academy, a fictional all-girls Catholic boarding school....Rosalind Russell plays the Mother Superior, who spends the movie at odds with Mary Clancy (Hayley Mills), a rebellious teenager, and her friend Rachel Devery (June Harding). The episodic story line follows the young women through their sophomore, junior and senior high-school years as they pull pranks on the sisters and repeatedly get into trouble. Although Mary spends much of her time at St. Francis resenting the authority of the Mother Superior and puzzling over why any woman would choose the life of a nun, as time goes on she is touched by examples of the sisters' dedication, devotion, kindness, love, and generosity....Mary receives "the call" senior year and, after graduation, remains at the school to begin her novitiate in the order.
