From The Cover

Shot on location in Assisi, this beautiful film stars Bradford Dillman as St. Francis and Dolores Hart as St. Clare in the story of one of the most popular saints who ever lived. Francis Bernardone, popular son of a wealthy cloth merchant, after hearing the voice of Jesus speak to him, had a radical conversion from a worldly man of adventure to a life devoted to Christ lived in Gospel simplicity and service to the poor. Men of all walks of life, moved by his shining witness, soon joined him in the new Franciscan religious order. The lovely young Clare, also influenced by the transformation of Francis, left a life of nobility to found a new order of nuns.

Full of rich color and wonderful cinematography, this inspiring film, based on the novel by Louis de Wohl, was directed by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) and also stars Stuart Whitman and Pedro Armendariz.
