On the popular British radio serial Applehurst, “Sister George” is the sweetas- pie gal next-door, but June Buckridge (Beryl Reid), who provides her voice, is a gin-soaked sadist who lords over her young girlfriend, “Childie” (Susannah York). “Remains a lesbian cult classic..may be the first movie in which an alcoholic, unrepentant butch who molests nuns is redeemed by her unwavering commitment to her sexuality.” - Melissa Anderson
