Gentle Friends I wanted to wrap this week of fun Christmas Films with a hum-dinger!! One of the top Films of the Season....
....."The Bishops Wife" - 1947 - starring David Niven, Cary Grant, Loretta Young, Monty Woolley and Gladys Cooper. A wonderful film that works on so many levels. A superb cast in great rolls; snappy writing; superbly paced editing and some super music! The final cast were not the original choices... The original casting choices were: David Niven was to play the Angel, Dana Andrews the Bishop and Theresa Wright as the Wife - what a different film that would have made. The story in a nutshell....."A Bishop trying to build a new grand Cathedral prays fro guidance. An angel arrives, but his guidance isn't about fundraising."
I watch this film two or three times over the Season and have seen it few dozen times, and it never gets old or boring - that's what makes it a true "Christmas Classic!!"
I found this clip of the Mitchel Boys choir singing "O Sing to God" from the film. It's a super number ....
A little tid-bit about this film is that yesterdays film "The Man Who Came to Dinner"'s star Monty Woolley is a featured actor in this film, playing a Professor of Ancient History.
