Item Description...
About this title: This penultimate film by director Michael Curtiz, perhaps best known for his 1942 Casablanca, is a verbose, routine religious drama on the life of St. Francis of Assisi. After quickly passing over St. Francis' early life as the son of a wealthy cloth merchant in Assisi, the story notes his talents in and out of battle. St. Francis hears the call to the cloth (in his hagiography, the call was repeated several times before he finally responded completely), and gives up all his worldly goods to dedicate himself to God. The main focus of attention is then on his relationship to Clare (Dolores

Good movie for the Catholic DVD collection  Feb 2, 2010
I wanted to have a collection of Catholic DVDs at home to watch and this was one of them. The storyline was good, but obviously due to it's age the technology used for the production was much simpler than what is used now. When I try to find religous videos, I typically try to steer away from movies that have the Protestant Christian perspective in them instead of the Catholic Christian perspective. I don't recall any parts where a Protestant perspective was emphasized. Lastly, I think this site had the best price for this video.
Very Simple Like St. Francis of Asissi was!!!  Sep 20, 2009
The actor who portrays St. Francis is very realistic, in that after watching it for a few minutes, one feels as if it is the real St. Francis of Asissi!!! Also the movie shows the audience the great relationship St. Francis shared with St. Claire, their mutal respect for each other and trust, moves one to tears!
A great scene in the movie is when he visits the pope in rome, its funny; he basically walks up to the Vicar of Christ and says, "I am starting a new order and I need your permission and Blessing." Amazing!!!
Anyone who loves St. Francis Of Asissi should watch this movie especially on his feast day which I believe is October 4th!
Enjoy and be inspired!

Francis of God  Sep 12, 2009
This is one of the best films about the life of a Saint, difficult topic to bring to the screen, although successfully accomplished; not seek much to show false intellectuality or religious piety sometimes bad represented; is in fair exchange, close to the facts (despite some liberties)
and the character's personality and spirituality. Bravo Maestro Michael Curtiz.

Factual As To Teachings  Feb 2, 2009
I was raised Catholic & collect movies of a religious nature. This movie is extremely well presented as well as being accurate along with the teachings of my Church in regard to the life of St. Francis. A MUST SEE!!
"What Do You Want Me To Do?" ~ Building Chapels In The Heart  Oct 13, 2008
If you were to take a survey amongst Catholics asking them who was there favorite Saint chances are they're going to say Francis of Assisi. If you're unfamiliar with the life and accomplishments of this beloved personage and would like to learn a little bit about him the '61 film appropriately titled 'Saint Francis' would be a good place to begin. Bradford Dillman delivers a very Christ-like portrayal of Francis, Dolores Hart is sheer perfection as the gentle Claire and Stuart Whitman adds the necessary fire and emotion to point out the stark contrast between human and divine love.

While this film is surpassed by 'Brother Sun, Sister Moon' ('72) in emotionality, artistry, cinematography and soundtrack, this older version is more factual and encompasses the whole of Francis' life instead of ending at his Papal Commision as the Zeffirielli film does.

As a Catholic I appreciate the sincerity and intent of this production, while at the same time I must be honest and admit that approached as entertainment there are some problems. The story unfolds slowly and the majority of performances are uncomfortably stiff and the dialogue unrealistic. If not for the presence of the angelic Dolores Hart this film would receive a -3 Star- rating. It is her external and internal beauty that gives this film a whole new level of meaning and spirituality that entices me back for subsequent viewings now and again.

Footnote: Dolores Hart left Hollywood in '63 to become a Catholic Nun. Now a member of the Benedictine Order, Mother Dolores resides in the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Connecticut where she lives out the faith and principles that she so beautifully portrayed in this film.
