This is a fun follow up to The Trouble with Angels. Okay so it is not going to win any awards, but it is enjoyable to see what trouble these 2 girls get into. They travel across the country to go to a musical performance and have lots of adventures on the way. I love both these movies mostly because they were my favorites when I was a little girl so they bring back fond memories. I'm not sure my kids would put up with them at all, but I enjoy them.

Not a Pan-and-Scan

"Previous reviewers are incorrect in their assertions that this DVD is a "pan and scan" version. "Where Angels Go..." was shot in the 1.85:1 format popular then and now, in which the entire 1.33:1 aspect ratio 35mm film frame was exposed during production. During theatrical exhibition, the top and bottom of the frame are "matted" in the projector to create the 1.85:1 screen aspect ratio. So, on this DVD, you are seeing MORE of the frame than was shown in theaters (the entire 1.33:1 frame). There was no panning and scanning involved in this transfer. TCM has shown the picture "matted" to re-create the aspect ratio as seen in theaters. It is simply incorrect to assume that a "full frame" version of any film on DVD has been "panned and scanned" without knowing the original production format or the theatrical exhibition format."

"WHERE ANGELS GO, TROUBLE FOLLOWS (1968) is the sequel to the 1966 surprise hit "The Trouble with Angels", updating the lives of the nuns of St. Francis Academy and their lively pupils.
When free-thinking Sister George (Stella Stevens) plans for the girls to attend a youth rally on the other side of the country, first she must convince staunch Reverend Mother (Rosalind Russell) and the rest of the sisters. During their long bus-trip, Sister George gradually wins the admiration of the Reverend Mother, whilst troublesome students Marvel-Ann (Barbara Hunter) and Rosabelle (Susan Saint James) weave their own brand of hijinks...
While it succeeds in reviving the characters of "The Trouble with Angels", WHERE ANGELS GO... pales in comparison with it's predecessor. It lacks a certain sense of innocence; which might be due to the radically shifting political and social climates in which it was filmed. In one tense scene, the bus-party is terrorised by a gang of knife-wielding bikers...a far cry from the quiet charms of Hayley Mills & Co. from the first movie.
Barbara Hunter and Susan Saint James don't carry the youthful side of the cast terribly well, but they deliver solid work. It's always a pleasure seeing Rosalind Russell, and her slyly comic Reverend Mother is a joy. Stella Stevens takes a while to settle into her role of progressive Sister George, but she's a luminous presence.
The DVD is unfortunately in "Pan & Scan", but that shouldn't stop people from enjoying this cute comedy. (Single-sided, single-layer disc)."
A Cute Movie That Should Be On DVD!

"I first watched Where Angels Go Trouble Follows on on one of those classic movie channels and it was shown in widescreen too so why is it you can watch this movie on cable TV and the station shows it in widescreen but the DVD gets a lousy pan and scan format? Okay the first movie that starred Hayley Mills is better but this is a cute movie too and I think Stella Stevens, Rosalind Russell and Susan St. James were really good though I agree that it woukd have been nice if Hayley Mills was in this movie too."

"This may not be a classic, but it brings to mind an age of innocence long gone. I have enjoyed it since I was 10 years old. Now at 30, I still enjoy watching a time when good, clean & simple fun was the focus. Yes, I do love this movie and would recommend it because it is what it is: FUN."
