Thunder on the Hill (Bonaventure)
In this melodrama, an English nun befriends a convicted murderess and becomes convinced that the woman is innocent of slaying her brother. Unfortunately, the woman is sentenced to hang and the nun must hurry to prove her innocence. It is only after a terrible flood forces most of the villagers into the convent, that the nun is able to succeed and bring the real killer to final justice.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The whole thing is solemn and perfunctory, when all is said and done, and it leaves one wondering upon what sort of evidence that poor girl was originally condemned."
‑ , New York Times
"Intense melodrama about a nun solving a murder."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A pouring rainstorm keeps the drama properly claustrophobic, and Sirk handles the conventions of the mystery with characteristic finesse."
‑ Don Druker, Chicago Reader
"Minor, but nonetheless fascinating, work of Sirk."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
