The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price - Episode 7 - The Song of Bernadette

In this episode Dr. Gangrene takes a look at the 1943 film THE SONG OF BERNADETTE, where Price plays the part of Imperial Prosecutor Dutuor. A young village girl named Bernadette Soubirous sees a vision of the Virgin Mary in a grotto. Dutour is determined to prove Bernadette is a fraud by any and all means. This film is based on an actual historical event, where a young girl in France made the very same claims, which were backed up by the Catholic church and Bernadette is now considered a saint. Price is fantastic in this film, as the doubting non-believer. Worth watching for Price fans, despite the slow-pace and over-long run time.
