In this follow-up to "The Trouble with Angels", the wry but wise Mother Superior of St. Francis Academy For Girls accompanies a group of nuns including modern, progressive Sister George, with their high-spirited students on a bus trip across America to a California peace rally. Along the way, they encounter a series of adventures that include multiple bus problems, an overnight stay at a Catholic school for boys run by Father Chase, a Western dude ranch owned by millionaire Mr. Farriday, a flamboyant movie director shooting a Western on location, and a bunch of menacing biker toughs.

Did You Know?


Milton Berle's performance as the 'Director' is a parody of John Ford, with the eye patch, the sunglasses, and the style of hat, as well as the fact that he is directing a western movie. See more »


This is supposed to be a follow up to THE TROUBLE WITH ANGELS that starred Haley Mills however there's a few problems with it. Mary Clancy (Haley Mills) stayed on after she graduated to become a nun in their order however there's no mention of her now. I suppose she could have changed her mind later and left or perhaps was sent to another calling like the one that nun was to work with lepers. And then there's the problematic Marvel Ann (played by Barbra Hunter in both films). Shouldn't she have graduated too? Perhaps she was a year or two younger then Mary Clancy? All in all still good times watching these films. See more »

Crazy Credits

The final credits end with "And The State Contest Winners" listing eight girls from eight states where portions of the film were shot (New Mexico, Oklahoma, Illinois, Ohio, Texas, Missouri, Indiana and Pennsylvania.) Presumably each girl won a brief screen appearance that was shot when the filmmakers came to her state. See more »

They Should Have Filmed the Rally Scenes
1 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

I used to work in Fort Washington, not too far from where these movies were filmed at. Every time I went by the St. Mary's Villa either on my way to or back home from work, I always thought to myself "That's where they filmed The Trouble With Angels." I first saw this movie when I was in school in back in '73; just five years after it was first released. But then I saw it again on TV thirteen years later (in 1986), and I just kept on watching it over and over again. I also have some of the dialogue from this movie memorized as well.

Since the story was about them going to California for a youth rally, what they should have done was this: Show them arriving at the rally and filming the rally scenes as well. Continue filming the rest of the journey to California instead of leaving them off somewhere in the desert Southwest, and then returning to St. Francis showing the nuns in their shorter habits. They made it to the rally, but they should have showed them actually being there; not just talk about it.

Also, after they left Mr. Farriday's (Robert Taylor) ranch, were they still in New Mexico when they got caught in an Indian attack that was part of a Western movie being filmed on location there, and the bus's axle broke? ) How about when they came across a detour where they wouldn't make the rally in time? Or when they stopped at a museum to pick up some Indian souvenirs? Since Sister Clarissa told the Mother Superior that the detour would take them 125 miles out of their way, were they in Arizona? Since Sister Clarissa (Mary Wickes) drove the bus, she should have taken a highway route to Chicago. Then drive out Route 66 all the way to Los Angeles, and then up the Pacific Coast Highway to Santa Barbara. Instead, she took a lot of back roads; including the one what was detoured. At least they made it to the rally.

It's a shame that Haley Mills wasn't in this. If she had, how would she handle Sister George (Stella Stevens) and her liberal ideas; as well as her grumpy cousin, Marvel Ann (Barbara Hunter)? After all, her character in The Trouble With Angels, Mary Clancy, decided to stay at St. Francis and become a nun after she graduated from there.

But at least this movie was just as good as The Trouble With Angels.
