Trouble With Angels, The (1966)

Two high-spirited young students at St. Francis Academy (a Catholic boarding school for girls) keep things hopping for the challenged Mother Superior and her staff of bewildered Sisters.

The story spans three years and follows the girls and their many pranks including setting off fire alarms, smoking cigars in the basement and putting bubble baths in the nuns’ sugar bowls.

As the girls mature, they gain a greater respect for their teachers and the commitment and devotion required to be a nun, leading one of them to make a life-changing decision.

Blanche Hanalis adapted the script from Jane Trahey’s novel Life With Mother Superior.

Producer William Frye, composer Jerry Goldsmith and photographer Lionel Linden were about the only men allowed to work on this Women Only film. Also involved in the fun with the nuns was ex-stripper Gypsy Rose Lee.
