In the early 60's, a nun, calling herself The Singing Nun, released an album
of musical hymns and religious songs that turned out to strike a chord with
the public. Just about everyone alive in that era still can recognize the
strains of Dominique. Naturally, Hollywood chose to make her story into a
movie. What they actually did was make an idealized story into a movie,
pretending it is the true story. As such, the story comes off as syrupy and
too much everyone's fantasy of the perfect nun. She wants only to work with
children; she thinks of nothing but her service to the church, she actually
rails against abortion in the film. This makes the movie plodding and very
boring in places. It also projects a too-virginal image that gets old very
quickly. And, for some reason they felt the need to have an old flame to
the pre-habit days around to spice things up just a bit, though she remains
true to her faith throughout.
The true story is of Jeanine Deckers, known to the world mostly at Soeur
Sourire ("Sister Smile"), who called the film "a film of fiction". In the
convent she was known as Sister Luc-Gabrielle and did not like the Sister
Smile moniker the record company came up with. In contrast to the
perfection of the movie, Jeanine Deckers was a very conflicted personality
who did not like the attention of the world and definitely did not hold an
attraction to a male record producer as shown in the film. In fact, she
left the order in 1965, accompanied by her lover, Annie Pescher, whom she
stayed with until their mutual suicide pact in 1985. Gee, if you were an
old Dominique fan, I probably burst a few bubbles there.
What I think is interesting is that the true story would probably be the
Hollywood choice were it made today. The 1965 film portrayed perfection and
idealism. I'm sure a 2002 film would search for the seediest of details and
revel in her contradictions. What is sad is that neither version would make
a very good film. The excessively sweet Debbie Reynolds/Recardo Montalban
version is mostly pretty dull and the true story would undoubtedly resemble
yet anther VH1 Behind the Music.
Watch for Katherine Ross in her first year as an actress as about the only
real character in the film. The Ed Sullivan cameo is rather interesting as
