You have omitted that wonderful flick about the Western cloister, the Bar Nun.
Actually, barring nuns doesn't sound like that bad an idea.
The Nun's Story
Another vote for "The Nun's Story."
Yet another vote for the Nun's Story.
That c_nt, Emma Thompson, should be forced to watch it and then reply as to whether she thinks Audrey Hepburn is "twee."
(50 years from now, Audrey will still be an icon, Emma will be forgotten.)
"The Magdaline Sisters" makes me feel all warm inside at Christmastime.
I could have gone to Nashville and become Loretta Lynn...
Another vote for "The Nun's Story". Cannot even believe it was not listed as a choice!!!
The nun in the Nun's Story was a lesbian. I didn't catch that in the movie
Love, love LOVE nun movies! In fact, I'm watching "The Singing Nun" right now. My favorite nun movies usually co-star Mary Wickes..."The Trouble With Angels, Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows, Sister Act.
"Heel toe, heel toe, heel toe..."
I agree with R10, Nuns on the Run. Memorable lines. "Sister Euphemia of the Five Wounds. 'Five Wounds' for short. "
me 3 for r10 !
Abdolutely, R15! Will "The Devils" ever get an official DVD/Blu-Ray release in the US?
What about Sally Field, as Sister Bertrile in "The Flying Nun'?
Doncha like her? Doncha really, really like her?
Actually, R24, I thought the guy who played Carlos was hot.
As I recall, Carlos was an aficionado of tight white pants.
Angus of God.
Shirley MacLaine in "Two Mules for Sister Sara"
She's a hooker disguised as a nun, on the run with Clint Eastwood at his cowboy hottest.
Huge fan of nun movies. One of my favorites not listed yet....School of the Holy Beast. Made in Japan so you know it is going to be perverted and sleazy.
Some incredible imagery like a woman getting beaten with roses and the thorns cutting into the skin.
A nun being tortured by being forced to drink large amounts of water while she is sitting over a picture of Jesus. Will she or won't she piss on Jesus?
"The Bells of St. Mary's", starring Ingrid Bergman and Bing Crosby, was the biggest boxoffice hit of 1945.
Bergman's nun role was the one Joan Crawford feared would win the oscar, and so she took to bed so she wouldn't attend.
Agnostic of God
Black Narcissus is so lovely to look at.
Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows because of the character named "Roosevelt" and because it was so groovy.
I tried to post this over the weekend, but it didn't seem to take. Almodovar's Dark Habits -- a convent filled with heroine addicted nuns. One of them is named Sister Rat, as I recall. I can't recall if they were all lesbians or not.
"The Little Nuns" (1965) starring Catherine Spaak: "Two nuns come to Rome to protest to an airline about its jet planes which have been flying over their convent school."
The Flying Nut
Considering that all of the movies you list are several decades old (except Doubt) I would hardly say they are "so popular".
Behind Convent Walls (Interno di un convento).
Add another vote for "The Nun's Story."
By far the best depiction of conventual, cloistered life and the struggle between self-affirmation and self-denial. Brilliant performance by Hepburn.
The Nun's Story. Obviously.
Bells of St Marys
Where Angels Go Trouble Follows
How do you solve a problem like Maria?
Let me show you.
The Golden Gate Murders (tv movie, 1979).
Where's La Religieuse? Great movie and Anna Karina is wonderful in it.
The Trouble with Angels is a very stylish film directed by Ida Lupino and it's still a lot of fun.
Howver, The Nuns Story and Black Narcissus are pieces of cinematic art.
I also want to mention the wonderful Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison starring Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr, directed by John Huston.
Have to cast my vote for The Nun's Story. I even read the book, which was very good.
Love Roz Russel!
The Trouble with Angels.
What about DEAD MAN WALKING and TWO MULES FOR SISTER SARA?
I'll have to give an honorary mention to MERMAIDS 'cause even though none of the main characters is a nun, Winona does spend almost the entire film aspiring to be a nun, and it does feature some nuns toward the end.
My favorite is "Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison" with Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr.
No poll option for "Nun of the above"?
I thought ugly thoughts about Sister Marguerite!!
"Conspiracy of Hearts" is a charming story about nuns rescuing Jewish children from the holocaust. It stars Lilli Palmer.
"The Carmelites" is about nuns going underground during the French Revolution. It has a highly dramatic ending. It stars Jeanne Moreau as the Mother Superior.
