Religion Was Never this Way as "Come to the Stable Shows" ***1/2
Loretta Young's beautiful Oscar-nominated performance, as a nun, in the wonderful "Come to the Stable," highlights this beautiful film.
This film deals with a group of nuns who are committed to building a children's hospital and what they must go through to get the necessary approval as well as the funds.
After a very difficult time in procuring money, they attain their goal only to get a thumbs down from the church that feels it has other obligations to attend to.
There is a heart warming performance by Thomas Gomez, as a parishioner who is widowed and has lost his only son to World War 11. Stingy, he finally donates in memory of his son. His remembering of his son was so poignantly done.
Elsa Lancaster and Celeste Holm were each nominated for best supporting actress for their performances. Holm plays a mean game of tennis in one scene.
A beautiful film of the human spirit.
