Pic of the Day: “Change of Habit” revisited

Better late than never, today’s pic revisits Change of Habit (1969), Elvis Presley‘s last feature film. Timothy’s grocery store manager is about to give Sister Barbara (Jane Elliot) a deal on a mop handle, not realizing that she is his activist nemesis.

Change of Habit

This was also the last feature film for Richard Carlson, who portrays the nuns’ superior Bishop Finley. Most remember him from such 1950s horror/sci-fi classics as Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), It Came from Outer Space (1953) and The Magnetic Monster (1953). He also did several educational shorts for Bell Labs that were directed and/or co-written by Frank Capra.
