Baker plays a nun in a Spanish convent who falls in love with Moore, a soldier battling the Napoleonic army in Spain. When Baker leaves the convent to pursue Moore, a statue of the Virgin Mary comes to life, assuming the position of the absent nun. Believing Moore to be dead, Baker marries

gypsy Gassman, who is killed by his jealous brother. Baker then becomes involved with bullfighter Rojo, who is killed in the bull ring. She finally meets Moore again just prior to the battle of Waterloo, but decides to return to her convent. The statue then returns to its place on the pedestal.

Despite its purported religious theme, the story fails to delve deeply into spiritual experiences, or anything religious for that matter. Baker's performance lacks the warmth needed for this role, while the men are all stereotypical macho types. The film's highpoint is the Technicolor

photography.
