Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Weekend Nun was an unsold TV pilot film based on the life and career of Louisiana nun Sister Fabian (real name: Joyce Duco). Joanna Pettet stars as Sister Mary Damien (aka: Marjorie Walker), who on weekdays holds down a job as a probation officer (she even packs a gun). The schism between the outside world and Sister Fabian's religious calling is brought sharply into focus when tragedy strikes. Vic Morrow costars as the sister's probation department associate, while Ann Sothern appears as the head nun. The real Sister Fabian/Joyce Duco, who had left the Order long before this film was made, acted as technical adviser on Weekend Nun.
