The Bells of St. Mary's

2 years, 7 months ago at Jun 20 20:29
I just plain don’t get the sleepy-eyed charm of Bing Crosby. As an actor I find him to be rather indifferent to any part he plays, always looking bored, never investing much in the way of emotional truth, but he did have a very lovely singing voice. Which he seemingly used in every single film he made, didn’t matter what kind it was. And in this sequel to Going My Way he reprises his role as a... read more

Description: Witty, heartwarming and utterly charming, The Bells of Saint Mary's delivers all the entertainment of its predecessor, the Academy Award-winning Best Picture (1944), Going My Way. Bing Crosby recreates his Oscar-winning (Best Actor) role as parish priest Father O'Malley, who is sent to revive the financially ailing parochial school. The easy-going O'Malley is immediately at odds with no-nonsense Sister Benedict (Ingrid Bergman in a Golden Globe-winning performance) on how to educate children. Beyond their delightful battle of wits lies a bigger problem. The skinflint businessman next door (Henry Travers, It's A Wonderful Life®) ... (more)

As an actor I find him to be rather indifferent to any part he plays, always looking bored, never investing much in the way of emotional truth, but he did have a very lovely singing voice. Which he seemingly used in every single film he made, didn’t matter what kind it was. And in this sequel to Going My Way he reprises his role as a singing priest with a laid-back demeanor.
