Fred Zinnemann and the Cinema of Resistance

University Press of Mississippi

Chapter five returns to the European war with Fred Zinnemann's adaptation of Kathryn Hulme's The Nun's Story and explores women's perspectives on war and Resistance. Placing Kathryn Hulme's semi-biographical narrative about former nun and UNRRA nurse Marie Louise Habets in the context of the emerging popular and cinematic discourse of the Resistance and the Catholic church's collaboration with the Nazis, the chapter ranges from discussion of the touchy subject of Catholic complicity to Audrey Hepburn's unique commitment to the Belgian war heroine and her story.

Keywords:   Catholic Church, The Nun's Story (1959), Audrey Hepburn, Women, Resistance
