Movie Info

In this heartwarming 1949 film, Sister Margaret (Loretta Young) and Sister Scholastica (Celeste Holm) arrive unannounced and determined to build a children's hospital in the small New England town of Bethlehem. They seek to fulfill a promise they made to God when he saved a similar infirmary in war-torn Normandy. To build it, the sisters recruit various townspeople, negotiate with a bookie (Thomas Gomez) for the land and contend with a songwriter (Hugh Marlowe) who's set against the project.

Critic Reviews for Come to the Stable

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • Sweet, pious entertainment of a sort that “they don't make like that anymore.”

  • The sad life of a Negro in Hollywood comes clear here. Dooley Wilson, who scored one of the screen's most sensational debuts in Humphrey Bogart's Casablanca, is here reduced to a lowly chauffeur... [his] fine talent is unseen and unheard.

  • Well acted by Celeste Holme and Lorette Young as French nuns in the U.S., this sentimental religious melodrama was very popular in 1949, garnering 7 Oscar nominations.

    June 12, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Surely a film that shows both its age and its seams, Come to the Stable nonetheless remains a testament to old Hollywood's ability to sell anything it put its mind to.

    Sweet movie with a nice message but 7 Oscar nominations?

    A very cute film about French nuns as the fish out of water coming to America in order to fulfill their heavenly mission. The interaction between the nuns and the people they encounter really makes this one sizzle.
