The Song Of Bernadette is a 1943 drama directed by Henry King. In a small French village during the 19th century, the destitute Soubirous family is struggling to survive. Fran''ois (Roman Bohnen) and Louise Soubirous (Anne Revere) live in a dilapidated former jail with their four children, Bernadette (Jennifer Jones), Marie (Ermadean Walters), Jean (Merrill Rodin), and Justin (Nino Pipitone Jr.). Fourteen-year-old Bernadette attends the village's Catholic school, where the nuns constantly scold her for her lack of religious knowledge. One day, Bernadette is gathering firewood in the forest when she sees a vision of a mysterious Lady (Linda Darnell) in a cave. The Lady tells Bernadette to come to the cave 15 times to pray with her and to gain eternal salvation. Although she does not know the identity of the Lady, Bernadette is convinced that she is speaking the word of God. When nobody else in her village can see the mysterious woman, Bernadette's adamance about the reality of her visions sparks outrage from town officials, who think that she is bringing ridicule to their village.moreless
