Francis of Assisi, the 1961 Michael Curtiz religious medieval Crusade Holy War melodrama ("How a lusty, fighting young adventurer turned into a saintly man of God"; "The story of a lusty, fighting young adventurer who exchanged his sword for a cross and rose to glory"; "Nothing could prepare you for this experience"; "This is a story of love... The selfless love of Francis of Assisi! Fond of worldly pleasures, he was like any other young soldier... Until a voice spoke and a miracle happened. Now with a clash of arms and the clang of carillons his wondrous world comes alive. Here is the motion picture that rings with his joy and gladness... With human hope and human faith."; "Screenplay by Eugene Vale, James Forsyth and Jack Thomas"; a biography of the famous Saint) starring Bradford Dillman (in the title role as Francis of Assisi), Dolores Hart, Stuart Whitman, Pedro Armendariz ("as The Sultan"), and Cecil Kellaway. Note that in this movie, Dolores Hart played a worldly woman who meets the famous religious figure, and is so taken by him that she becomes a nun, and one wonders if that didn't play a major role in her conversion two years later!
