“An absorbing, emotional and dramatic picturization of Franz Werfel’s novel…a warming and intimate narrative of godly visitation on the young girl of Lourdes…sensitively scripted and directed in best taste throughout.”
“A hymn to the everlasting beauty of innocence and faith…that challenges criticism, as did the miracles which it records. Played with exceptional authority by a large and completely excellent cast. And, through Jennifer Jones, a new actress who plays the difficult role of Bernadette, it achieves a rare quality of sweetness.”
—The New York Times
A classic 1943 telling of the tale of Bernadette Soubirous (Academy Award-winner Jennifer Jones), a peasant girl vouchsafed visions of a “beautiful lady” believed by many to be the Virgin Mary, The Song of Bernadette features Oscar-winning work by cinematographer Arthur C. Miller and composer Alfred Newman (available here as an isolated track). Also on tap are sterling performances by the likes of Vincent Price, Charles Bickford, Gladys Cooper, Lee J. Cobb, Anne Revere, and Roman Bohnen. This story of simple faith in dark times remains one of the most revered films of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
