Francis of Assisi (1961)

Notes: 4/26/11
Finlay Currie plays the Pope. This guy was always an old man.
Dolores Hart plays a nun and became a nun in real life.
Lacks the dramatic power needed to maintain my interest.
Doesn't really offer much.

Review: C
Biopic of renowned Saint is mostly nice to look at, under steady direction from Michael Curtiz. Cast includes young Bradford Dillman in the title role and memorable appearances by Finlay Currie and Cecil Kellaway. Ultimately, the film lacks the dramatic power to be a definitive telling of the life of St. Francis.
