This movie is at least 40 years old, perhaps 50. I don't remember in what era the film is set.
Two people (call them "A" and "B") are discussing finding a mate/boyfriend for Miss_X. (Miss X may have been one of the two people). They're at a church service. "A" points to "C" (a choir member) and says, "What about him?" With a look of disapproval, "B" then whispers into "A"s ear. Given the surprise expression on "A"s face, it's obvious to the audience that "C" had been castrated as a lad in order to keep his soprano voice for singing in the choir. This is confirmed when we hear "C" sing.
