Jack Nicholson as you’ve never seen him–playing a Franciscan friar

Jack Nicholson as you’ve never seen him–playing a Franciscan friar June 6, 2014

Did you know that one of Jack Nicholson’s first starring television roles was on “The Hour of St. Francis”? In the episode, filmed in the early 1960s, he plays a teenager discerning a vocation to the Franciscan Order. Really! Watch:

Nicholson was raised Catholic. Although, at last report, he was not practicing, he remains vocally pro-life because he recognizes he would have been aborted were it not for his mother and maternal grandmother’s strong moral character.

A bit of information on the “Hour of St. Francis” may be found online here.
