Beautiful poignant story, in the vein of Bells of St. Marys.
"Come to the Stable" is a beautiful, sentimental movie, in the vein of "Bells of St. Marys" and "Going My Way." I saw it many years ago before buying the video and seeing it again. Loretta Young, unquestionably one of the great actresses of all time, is outstanding as a dedicated nun. So is Celeste Holm. It is easy to see why they were nominated for oscars. The picture itself received (I believe) six nominations.
The picture has you pulling for these dedicated nuns to accomplish their task. As with movies of this era, of course they do.
It is well worth watching.
