Storyline

Gregory Lind is the junior priest at Our Lady of the Assumption, a Catholic parish in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Life at the parish is not perfect for Greg, as he is beginning to have philosophical differences with the church, most specifically the senior parish priest, Father Paul Schaeffer. In dealing with the incident of one of his young parishioners - a student at the church's school, he who came from a less than privileged background unlike most parishioners - Greg meets social worker and divorcée Pamela Gibson, who is able to live in comfort the result of the divorce settlement. Despite their differences in how to deal with the incident in question, Greg and Pamela begin a sexual relationship. Having already questioned his career path prior to Pamela entering his life, Greg has to decide where the church and Pamela fit into his future. Written by Huggo

A real stinkeroo!!
18 May 2003 | by jzydekSee all my reviews

This is one of the corniest movies I have ever seen. The two leads are decent actors, but please my nerves, could it be any more predictable or full of lousy cliches? It's not just that it's dated, it's just that it was a bad movie when it first came out in 1970 -- I remember it. I disliked it then and can't believe I watched it again. ICK!
