This film is one of Mamie Van Doran's all-time greats. The movie was a box office smash, but not before it ran afoul of the Catholic Church. Cardinal Spellman's approval over the final cut was needed as a result of the film being set in a Catholic establishment. Spellman had them cut a shower scene in witch Mamie, seen only from the shoulders up, sings a tune. Mamie Van Doran is sexy, vulnerable, tough, and overall, very likable. If you're not a Mamie fan by the end of this movie, you need to check your pulse 'cause you may be dead.★★★
