Audience Reviews for Thunder on the Hill


Poor unjustly accused Annie is headed to the gallows but waylaid by a flood bringing into the sphere of saintly Sister Claudette who senses something is awry. Loaded with high quality performers this is a bit preposterous but Sirk's steady hand in the director chair and the sincere work of the cast keep it from seeming outlandish.
