Change of Habit

One of my favorite Elvis movies is Change of Habit that premiered in 1969. 
Elvis stars as Dr. John Carpenter, a physician who is the head of a health clinic serving an underprivileged ghetto in a large metropolis. When three women show up to his clinic offering their medical services for free he happily accepts. What he doesn't know is that the women who are trained in medicine are also nuns. They've been sent to the neighborhood to help out and work on cleaning it up. One of the nuns, Michelle begins to work closely with Dr. John. They find themselves really starting to make a difference in the neighborhood and with the underprivileged kids.
 
Dr. John has started spending a lot of time with Michelle and even out of the clinic. He finds himself really caring for her. Michelle realizes that she has feelings for John as well but she's reluctant to leave the order. He also still has no idea that she's actually a nun. Once he learns that she is a nun he is surprised and scared. He finds himself in church praying for guidance and hoping that she will make the right choice. What will Sister Michelle decide to do? Will she stay with the nuns or will she leave that world for Dr. John?

I have a cousin who is a huge fan of Elvis! I remember visiting Graceland when I was a kid and not really understanding what a huge cultural phenomenon he was in his time.
