On the grave marker for Grace, it says she was born in 1936. According to the plot of the episode, she was pregnant at 18, and her child was 6 at the time of his death in 1958. If her child was 6 years old, she would have to be at least 24 in 1958, but she was only 22, making her child only 4. See more »

lipstick nuns
7 December 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I like this series a lot. Most episodes have a good feel for period and many of the stories have genuine feelings and an underlying sense of sorrow and regret. Sometimes I've even found myself quite moved by some of the stories. This particular episode had one of those quite touching stories, excellent B&W photography and the ever reliable Samantha Eggar going for it. Yet I just couldn't get over the sight of young nuns wearing full make up, lipstick gloss and mascara - supposedly back in the '50s!!! Even Samantha Eggar, as the older Sister Vivian, back in the present, was wearing an admittedly more discreet make up for her final scenes. Do nuns really wear make up in the States? What on earth was the make up department thinking about?????
