The Bells of St. Mary's
Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman




Overview -
This GOING MY WAY sequel stars Bing Crosby, reprising his role as worldly-wise Father Chuck O'Malley, and introduces Crosby's beloved song "Aren't You Glad You're You?" Father O'Malley is transferred to the soon-to-be-condemned school run by Sister Benedict (Ingrid Bergman), and the two quickly match wits and stubbornness, eventually finding a middle ground. A surprisingly light touch of sentimentality and humor gives this film by director Leo McCarey a glow of genuine feeling that effortlessly captures viewers' hearts. Though the debate still rages over which Father O'Malley film is better (GOING MY WAY or THE BELLS OF ST. MARY'S), the two films' nominations in back-to-back years for the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Song Academy Awards declare that both films are a treat to watch.
