Item Details

Father O'Malley is the new priest at the Church of St. Dominic in a working-class New York City neighborhood. He fails to make a good first impression with crusty old Father Fitzgibbon, who doesn't approve of O'Malley's golf playing, baseball game attending, or fishing. But O'Malley starts spiffing up the church and its neighborhood: dealing with the church mortgage, which is in arrears, and straightening out the street gangs by getting the boys to help him start a choir. Romantic matches are made; neighborhood busybodies are appeased. Many songs are joyfully sung, and O'Malley even arranges a big surprise for Fitzgibbon, who's homesick for Ireland.

Nice movie. Atypical story and delivery for that period in film making. However, Bing was great. I didn't know he was such a good actor. He plays the younger priest as a pius, but also street-wise. Barry Fitzgerald was excellent as well, as the older priest. Nice supporting job by Frank McHugh, who brings the right amount of jocularity to role of Bing's boyhood friend and now, fellow priest.
