Coming in between the classic Song of Bernadette and the later 1987 Bernadette, this movie falls somewhere in between. It more accurately portrays the life of Bernadette of Lourdes than the first, but continues to show her in a very pious light. This movie has some unique incidents, including the last apparition, but is not as entertaining as the other two. For some reason, miracles are downplayed. The movie seems most concerned with telling the story of Bernadette herself as a role model for young women. Unfortunately, not enough work is done to keep the viewer's attention. There are a few classic scenes, but overall this is the least of the three films.
