Storyline

Coming of age story for two girls, Mary Clancy and Rachel Devery, who find themselves as students at the St. Francis Academy, a catholic boarding school for girls. The story spans three years and follows the girls and their many pranks including setting off fire alarms, smoking cigars in the basement and putting bubble baths in the nuns' sugar bowls. As the girls mature, they gain a greater respect for their teachers and the commitment and devotion required to be a nun, leading one of them to make a life changing decision. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The exterior shots were filmed at St. Mary's Home, an orphanage, in Ambler, Pennsylvania. The main building looks like a stone castle and is still standing. It was featured prominently in the film but all the interior shots were done in a studio in California. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Devery: Couldn't we have uniforms, too, Reverend Mother?
Mother Superior: Most certainly not. The band will perform in their gym suits.
Rachel Devery: Our gym suits?
Mother Superior: Yes.
Mary Clancy: But, they're awful! I mean, it's not as if they were like Sacred Heart's. At Sacred Heart they wear short-shorts for gym.
Mother Superior: They're French.

Wonderful film
18 January 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite movies. I have even chosen my internet alias after it and been using it for years ! : ))

I enjoy watching it with my daughter immensely

as we laugh a lot.

Then I reach for the tissue box and cry at the end much to her desperation ( come on it's not that sad ! )

The cast is impeccable : Hayley Mills, Rosalind Russell and June Harding are really funny to watch and look like they 've had fun doing the movie together.

The credit title with the little cartoon is the cherry on the cake. As for the soundtrack it sums up the mischief in the two main characters.
