I bought this as a gift for my sister. Her confirmation name is Bernadette. She & I have always been fond of this saint. It's an outstanding DVD to watch! I'm especially fond of Jennifer Jones: she's an exceptional actress....
ITEM#: 2842881Jennifer Jones won a Golden Globe and an Oscar for her screen debut in this true story. Jones plays young French peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous, who sees a vision of a "beautiful lady" near her home in Lourdes in 1858. Based on the novel of the same name by Franz Werfel, THE SONG OF BERNADETTE explores Bernadette's trials and tribulations from her impoverished family to her difficulties at school to the derision her visions bring upon her and at last to her affliction with bone-marrow cancer. Under the incisive eye of director Henry King, the film is seen through Bernadette's perspective but at the same time focuses upon the effect that Bernadette has upon her family, her champions, and her detractors. The acting is excellent, and no detail has gone untouched in the art direction, costumes, and cinematography. Best of all, THE SONG OF BERNADETTE stands among a rare group of Hollywood films in which visual integrity is matched step for step with thematic zeal.

have looked forever for this movie. thanksRead More
Love this movie. Always have. It's an oldie but a goodie. So much more with each viewing. Our grandkids watched it with us last summer. We worried they would be bored with such an old movie. But, they loved it. They are all 10 and under. They watched it again and look forward to watching it again. The dialogue is awesome. Lot's of good food for thought and fun too.Read More
I have loved this movie since I was a child. It taught me to be humble and to stay faithful, no matter what my circumstances are. I only remembered Jennifer Jones as Bernadette until she died recently. The movie used to come on TV around Easter for many years and then they stopped showing it. Now that I own this movie, I will watch it more than once a year! Thank you Overstock, you are the best!!Read More
