This is a fantastic collection of four excellent films. Song of Bernadette was one of the biggest box office hits of 1943, and Jennifer Jones won the Best Actress Oscar for her role, and was nominated for 11 other Oscars. Catholics will find it very appealing but also movie buffs in general; there are fine performances by supporting players such as Vincent Price and Ann Revere. The disc has wonderful special features that is worthy of the price of the package; a documentary on the life of Ms. Jones and a fantastic commentary. A Man Called Peter is also a must see film, about the Presbyterian preacher Peter Marshall who was the official chaplain of the US Senate in the late 1940s. Buffs of American History will surely enjoy this movie, and is a pure delight in widescreen CinemaScope. The Gospel Road will appeal to Christians of all denominations, but will have special appeal to County Music fans, which I am! Johnny Cash and his wife, June appear in this wonderful film that is filled with rich gospel country songs that play over scenes of the life of Christ, including the crucifixion and resurrection. Perfect for Easter. And finally we have another gem "Francis of Assisi". It wasn't a box office hit, nor did it win any awards, but it is a great story and Christian History buffs will surely enjoy it, as it has cross denominational appeal. Directed by legendary Oscar winning director Michael Curtiz ("Casablanca") - how can you go wrong? A wonderfully reverent group of movies from Hollywood that I highly recommend.
