Storyline

Arrested for running a house of ill repute, sentenced 90 days house arrest living in a convent, New Orleans madam Dixie Cabot (Suzanne Pleshette) is definitely out of her element. Needing to mend her ways, she learns from the convent nuns, and they learn from Dixie. Cloris Leachman is the Mother Superior who clashes with, and must supervise Dixie, and Geraldine Fitzgerald plays the sage and experienced Sister Agnes. Written by trivwhiz

This forgotten gem of a TV movie deserves to be better known.

Suzanne Pleshette is superb as the bordello owner sentenced to work in a convent run by Cloris Leachman. The plot has some welcome humor along with melodramatic twists, and the supporting cast is top-notch.

Stereotypes are plentiful here: rigid nuns, a carefree madam, and town officials with skeletons (and negligees) in their closets. But that's no drawback to film with so much heart and spunk.

Perhaps inspired by "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," this entertaining TV movie is beautifully filmed and delivered with heart. Seek it out if you can, and grab it if you find it. 7/10 stars from me.
