|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.|

Classic Catholic Film, Classic in Many Ways
This film is a sequel to Going My Way, in which Bing Crosby also played a priest. In this film Bing plays a straw-boatered priest assigned to a broke (financially) school that appears certain to go out of business. Ingrid Bergman plays a nun who is also a boxing coach. It's the kind of film that makes you feel wonderful. When Bing sings the lovely and serious song "The Land of Beginning Again," he dispenses hope to all who have had to pick up the pieces of their lives and lurch forward into the future. There's an early scene with Bing addressing a group of hard-to-please nuns. Bing's standing in front of a mantel, where he rests his boater, which is noticed by the mantel's resident, a very photogenic kitten who proceeds to climb into the hat as Bing addresses the nuns seriously and as they, watching said kitten, begin to titter, and -- just see it, okay? You need to. Trust me.

Father O'Malley Returns and Meets a Boxing Nun
The Bells of St. Mary's (1945) is the sequel to the Oscar-winning Going My Way (1944), which introduced us to Father O'Malley (Bing Crosby), the singing priest with new ideas. In this film, Father O'Malley is assigned to a school run by nuns. He and nun Ingrid Bergman have conflicting views about education and life lessons, but they work together to help the students and learn from each other too. This is a heartwarming film with great songs, including "Aren't You Glad You're You?" There is also a lot of humor. I like the scene when a kitten finds itself underneath Crosby's hat and goofily drags the hat across the mantlepiece while Bing, unaware that anything is amiss, tries to address the chuckling nuns. I also enjoy Bing listening with embarassment while he hears a student repeat in class the answer he suggested to Bergman's assignment. Bergman knows the words are his and intimates as much in a funny exchange which ends with Crosby dashing out the door. Crosby and Bergman each give excellent performances. Bergman is especially good when she buys a book about boxing and teaches a boy how to handle himself in a fight after he lost an earlier scuffle in the school yard. She is caring, beautiful, and strong and a positive role model. The Bells of St. Mary's is appropriate for the whole family. You don't need to have seen Going My Way in order to appreciate this film, but I recommend you do watch the earlier picture as well, because both are very good.
Still one of the best films......
It was great doing business with the company and as always everything is always on time. I'm from the 50's generation and first saw this film on TV usually at Christmas time. I also had a copy on 35mm film but after awhile i kind of wore it out and film gets brittle after awhile. Buying the DVD it was beautifully restored and looks a lot better than my 35mm print. This is also when we had termendious acting. It's just a light movie based on faith with a great music score, comedy and some drama. I love happy endings and this film has that as well even if you do cry a little at the end. If you never saw it, you should. A great investment.
The Bells of St. Mary's
This is one of my most favorite Christmas movies. My family tradition is to watch White Christmas, The Bells of St. Mary's and It's A Great Life in a family gathering after dinner. This purchase has allowed me to continue with the tra- dition as our old VHS died. The care that was taken to ship the DVD safely, the response time and the condition of the DVD was outstanding. I would not hesitate to buy other products from this seller or deal with this organization. Your ex- tremly high standards are deeply appreciated. Anyone dealing with eBay and in particularl this seller can feel confident that the product will be in excellent condition, handled properly and shipped safely and expeditiously.
A Timeless Classic - Warm, Funny, Dramatic
This is to me one of the best films that Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman ever starred in! It is a timeless classic that is warm, tender, engaging, entertaining, dramatic, and even funny! A truly wonderful film for the entire family!
