Trivia

Betty Box said that Rank did not want her to make the movie saying: "It's religion, it's nuns, it's wartime. Who wants to know?". They eventually allowed her to make it provided she made another installment of the popular "Doctor In The House" series too. See more »

Goofs

The German convoy's route to Stalag 16 is in the opposite direction to the position of the camp indicated by long-shots of the Convent taken from inside the barbed-wire fence. See more »

Please! Please!! can you release this film on DVD or VCD
25 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Please can this beautiful film regarding Christian suffering and the understanding of standing for principles of truth be re-released on DVD. Even though I am not a Catholic Christian, but of another part of the family of Christ, I attended a Catholic school and I just feel this a really beautiful film.May God Bless all those Christians that risked their lives to save Jews and the weak in Nazi Occupied Europe. I feel these kind of films must be shown to an ignorant generation of people that have forgotten the horrors of World War 2. The wish of those that gave their lives in World War 2 for freedom and peace is that "We don't forget".Even if we look at the World now there is still genocide still taking place against vulnerable people just because they are different or speak different.
