To prevent the death of her soldier, she loves, she must make the ultimate decision to return to take her vows at the convent.

There is lot more to this movie to be said.
BUT THE QUESTION HERE IS......WHY IS THIS MOVIE NOT OUT ON DVD YET????
IT'S LONG OVERDUE!!!
Time for a dvd release of this great movie!!!
The film takes place in Spain, sometime in the early nineteenth century. At the Convent of the Valley of Milaflores stands a statue of the Madonna. Legend has it that since the statue has been there, the region has been prosperous. This is the convent where seventeen year old Teresa (Carroll Baker) is a postulant nun. One day, a group of English soldiers, sent to help Spain ward off invasion by the French, come by the convent. Led by young, impossibly handsome Captain Michael Stuart (Roger Moore), who cuts a dashing figure, Teresa falls in love at first sight. He, too, is smitten by her. As luck would have it, they fall in love, and Teresa agrees to meet him in town in order to get married.
Unfortunately, timing is everything. Teresa gets into town just as the French are invading. Believing that Michael has been killed, she leaves to wander about the world, after joining a band of gypsies. In the meantime, the statue of the Madonna literally leaves her pedestal, becoming flesh and blood. No one in the convent knows that Teresa is gone, as the Madonna has taken Teresa's place and assumed her visage.
Meanwhile, Teresa becomes a famous gypsy singer and dancer, traveling around the country and having adventures. Whenever a man falls in love with her, however, the recipe is usually disaster. One day, her faith is renewed, when she gets her dearest wish. She then finds herself making a promise that causes her to find herself back at square one. It is a life defining decision. It is a miracle.Read more ›
A bit draggy during Theresa's (Caroll Baker) gypsy days...other wise thoroughly engaging, and thought provoking.
I remember, as a child, when the Madonna took Theresa's place in the convent, we saw the Madonna's face.....now for some reason, they superimpose Theresa's face over the Madonna's.....dont know why.
