Come to the Stable ★★★ 1949

Warm, delightful story about two French nuns, Young and Holm, who arrive in New England and set about building a children's hospital. Although Catholic in intent, pic demonstrates that faith and tenacity can move mountains. (This film must have been Fox's response to Paramount's “Going My Way” and “The Bells of Saint Mary's.”) Based on a story by Clare Boothe Luce. 94m/B VHS . Loretta Young, Celeste Holm, Hugh Marlowe, Elsa Lanchester, Regis Toomey, Mike Mazurki; D: Henry Koster; W: Oscar Millard, Sally Benson; C: Joseph LaShelle; M: Cyril Mockridge.
