Black Narcissus. 1947. Great Britain. Written and directed by Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. With David Farrar, Flora Robson. 160 min.
A group of Catholic nuns who founded a convent in the Himalayas must confront conflicts between duty and passion. Kerr paired again with Powell and Pressburger, though this time Powell believed the actress was too young to play Sister Clodagh. The elaborate Himalayan sets were built at the Pinewood Studios while the verdant parklands at a Sussex estate stood in for lush Indian gardens; novelist Godden was unhappy with the production, as it wasn't shot on location in India.
