Item description for The Song of Bernadette by Henry King, Jennifer Jones & Charles Bickford...

Bernadette Soubirous (Jones) is a sickly 14-year-old girl who sees a vision of a "beautiful lady," and never suffers from her illness again. Moreover, a fountain suddenly materializes near her vision that seems to heal visitors who bathe in it. Unspoiled by her apparent gift, Bernadette nonetheless suffers the prejudices of those around her in this extraordinary, inspiring film that also stars Vincent Price, Charles Bickford and Lee J. Cobb.

Reviews - What do customers think about Song Of Bernadette?

The Song of Bernadette  Feb 21, 2008
For anyone whoever has experiences in life that are out of the ordinary. This is a movie for you. This young girl has an experience, some believe some do not. Watch it and see what you believe. As a little girl around Christmas time this movie came on very late at night and I struggled to stay awake. This movie always touched me and I hope it will for you.
One of my all time favorites!  Feb 9, 2008
The Song of Bernadette is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Jennifer Jones is excellent in this movie, the innocence she portrays in her character is so genuine. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
A Miracle!  Feb 5, 2008
"The Song of Bernadette" is one of my favorite films. The bleak poverty, the depth of winter, the chilling remoteness of the Pyrenean village is captured magnificently, so that it appears as the most unlikely spot for miracles that would shake the world. There are few more majestic moments in cinema than when the dying baby is plunged into the newly dug spring at the grotto of Massabielle, to come forth with a hearty, healthy cry. (Such a miracle did happen at Lourdes. I always cry at that scene.) Jennifer Jones becomes St. Bernadette; she resembles her a great deal, other than the divergence in height. The tall Jennifer communicates quite masterfully the littleness of the petite Bernadette, as well as her purity and simplicity. Charles Bickford's portrayal of the crusty, skeptical Abbé Peyramale, who becomes Bernadette's indefatigable champion, inspired me to visit the Abbé's tomb in the crypt of the parish church of Lourdes. The Abbé died two years before Bernadette, and so was not at her deathbed as shown in the movie.

The film was based upon the novel by Franz Werfel, one of the greatest Catholic novels written by a non-Catholic. When Werfel, who was Jewish, was escaping the Nazis, he and his wife (the notorious Alma Mahler) stopped in Lourdes on their way to Spain. Werfel found a great deal of spiritual consolation in Lourdes, and promised the long dead Bernadette that he would write down her story. The novel and film romanticize some aspects of Bernadette's life; a few historical liberties are taken. But the portrayal of Bernadette and her family, particularly her horrified parents, already overwhelmed by trials, is fairly accurate, as is the recounting of the amazing events at the grotto.

Particularly remarkable is how both the book and film emphasize that it was not the apparitions that made Bernadette into a saint; it was rather how she accepted the trials sent by God, from the humiliations in the convent to the debilitating and agonizing health problems that killed her. In the final scene, the faith of a dying nun illuminates a darkening world. I rejoice that her moment of light is artistically captured on film for posterity.
Awe Inspiring  Jan 31, 2008
There's no use repeating the synopsis, as that's been done wonderfully well by others. But, it's worth saying again what a cinematic masterpiece this film is. I've seen this movie at least 25 times, and it becomes more awe inspiring with each viewing, because the more you see it, the more you want to see it. A five star rating is simply insufficient.

Beautifully acted, marvelously directed, and wonderfully written, "The Song of Bernadette" will thrill and inspire you. If you ever wondered what a real saint looked and acted like, Jennifer Jones' incredible portrayal of Bernadette will demonstrate that to you. The music alone will take you on a journey of wonder. The heartbreaking but beautifully moving ending scene will cause you to look at yourself and the world diffently, if only for a few moments.

Like the opening title says: "For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who don't, no explanation is possible." If you are a believer, this film will only strengthen your faith. If you are straddling the fence or just want to be able to believe, after watching this beautiful and fact-based film, you will.
Great Movie!  Jan 14, 2008
Great movie. Historically factual. Entertaining, not just as a Catholic topic, but as a movie overall.
