5.0 out of 5 stars Back To The "Good Old Days" Jan. 8 2004
Format:VHS Tape
In the late 1940's and into the 50's, there was a decency and innocence which existed that has all but disappeared today. This movie is a simple, wonderful story about innocence and blind faith, played beautifully by Loretta Young and Celeste Holm in the form of 2 French nuns. Using their charisma, they manage to get a children's hospital built in an affluent area, in which the people eventually are won over by these charming nuns. It is a "feel good" movie of the first magnitude, and, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful films ever made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not my usual dish of tea Aug. 13 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Normally, a movie about a writer of popular songs discovering that what he thought was his original song actually was inspired, wouldn't really appeal to me. The character played by Loretta Young almost does the trick, though - and the scene in which Young's character asks Luigi Rossi for help always tears me up. This is a good Second List movie.

Loretta Young, one of Hollywood's most respected actresses had one of her greatest roles as the assured and determined Sister Margaret in Twentieth Century Fox's 1949 "Come to the Stable" a beautiful story of two women's determination and sheer belief in the rightness of what they are seeking in their work for others. Loretta Young, a staunch catholic in real life is one of those rare actresses in a league with the likes of Ingrid Bergman, Deborah Kerr and Audrey Hepburn , that seem totally convincing as nuns whether it be in their displays of humility in portraying their characters or just by the total immersion that they undergo when taking on the nun role.
"Come to the Stable" tells a very simple but extremely moving story based on a short story by Clare Booth Luce, of the journey that two nuns, one American and one french, make to fulfill a solemn vow made during World War 2. Resulting from the fact that through prayer to St. Jude, the Patron Saint of lost causes, their hospital was spared destruction by the advancing forces the two make a vow to return to America to set up a similiar hospital for young infants in Bethlehem, Connecticut where they have learnt of a woman who paints very beautiful religious paintings. After finding the right place atop a serene hill with perfect views of the town the nuns with very little money, very few propects and with a strong unquestioning faith proceed to achieve everything that has become their lifes work. Their journey from a hopeless situation with no funds to build the hospital or obtain the land, to one that inspires others to get involved to achieve the dream of the new hospital makes for inspirational viewing and puts across the strong message of the basic good of all people if you only take the time to look for it.

This movie and The Bishop's Wife are my 2 favorite Loretta Young
films. I, too, saw it on TV years ago and finally found a video to buy. I watch it at Christmas time, also. The two nuns, Loretta and Celeste Holm, arrive in Bethlehem, CT. during a snowstorm. Something I noted when I saw film: my father's relatives used to live in Waterbury, CT. back in the '50s and '60s. When we visited them, up the big hill from where they lived, there was sign advertising the town of Bethlehem, a re-creation of the biblical town of Bethlehem--a local tourist attraction that presented pageants this time of year. I think of that when I watch this film. Wonder if the makers of the film knew that, because the sign in the road the nuns see says "Bethlehem, CT." Is Bethlehem, the CT. tourist attraction from my youth, still going strong? Is it located in or nearby Waterbury, CT. I never went to see it, so I don't know for sure.
