This is a really sweet film that I have always loved. It is not very fast-paced as movies go, and the whole sub-plot relationship with the one student's parents just deciding everything's great and to get back together - is not very believable. However, the rest of the movie is wonderfully acted and scripted. Bergman's character is so realistic; she comes across as a strict and unbending nun, but is really full of contradictions, and teaches a boy how to box so he can defend himself ont he playground. And even though there is no romanctic love between the two main characters, they show some of the realest love ever to grace tv sets. If you're up to an old-fashioned, sweet tale, with a few songs from Crosby and a couple of his signature grins, this one is sure to make you smile.
