"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Dominique Blanchar

Dominique Blanchar, born on 2nd June1927 in Paris.

“The Song of Sister Maria” – USA, “Sor intrépida” – Spain (original title).

Dominique Blanchar (billed as Dominique Blanchard in the American-released print) gives up her profession as a singer, with a promising career, to become a nun, over the protestations and objections of her wealthy family. She becomes a Sister in a hospital ward, and her unconventional methods of getting something done proves disconcerting to her superiors at first, but they discover her to be truly noble. To help a dying patient she “moves” Christmas up by two weeks, and in order for the hospital to get much-needed funds, she makes some records and sends the proceeds anonymously to the hospital. Later, as a Mother Superior, she volunteers to go to a leper colony in India, where she dies while serving others.
