A classic

Back in the 40โ€™s, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger made some really lavish productions during which what was considered by many movie viewers as the Golden Age of British cinema. With this movie, once again, the production value was quite impressive and it is hard to believe that the whole thing was shot in a studio and not on location.

Description: British nun Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) is chosen by her order to establish a school and dispensary in the Himalayas. Among those selected to accompany her on this mission are Sister Briony (Judith Furse), a capable take-charge nun; Sister Phillipa (Flora Robson), a nun with a green thumb to handle the garden, and Sister Ruth (Kathleen Byron), a moody nun who is frequently sick or depressed. Sister Clodagh's superior believes that she is too young to assume such a large leadership role in a strange place but wishes her well.

Films Condemned by the Legion of Decency (75 movies items)

"British nuns start a school in the Himalayas, but the wild, sensual atmosphere gradually drives them to insanity, nymphomania, and murder. This classic melodrama from the Powell/Pressburger team was both condemned and edited on its initial American release, removing the flashback scenes in which Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) remembers her life prior to joining the convent. "

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ NOTES: BFI Technicolor print, introduced by Edgar Wright as part of the BFIโ€™s Dream Palace season. The red and blue bleeds through most of the time in such a way that youโ€™d feel tempted to put on some 3D glasses just to see how it would turn out, though around half of the shots would end with the colours bleeding out further, even more heavily in the first and second reels. First changeover was cued by lines drawn with a marker while the last two change"
