Le Monachine (1963)

In this extremely light family film, Catherine Spaak plays a nun who travels to Rome to protest an airline whose loud jet planes are constantly flying over her convent. She is accompanied by her superior and one of the more mischievous students.

The transfer I came across, far from exemplary, was sourced from a 16mm print of the 1965 American release from Embassy Pictures. One of several Catherine Spaak films brought to America by the legendary producer Joseph E. Levine.
