The Song of Bernadette

Henry King USA, 1943

SpacePirate's rating of the film Das Lied von Bernadette

Jones gives probably her best performance here. A shame she never really came close to it the rest of her career, although I LOVE Portrait Of Jennie. This film is carried by excellent actors of the time, like Bickford, Price, and the always underrated Gladys Cooper. The story of religious persecution and close-mindedness to the faith of others still resonates today. A very moving film. True Hollywood classic. 5 stars
