The Bishop's Wife

Film, Comedy
Honni soit qui mal y pense

Time Out says

Pleasant enough Goldwyn-produced whimsy, cashing in on the success of '40s angelic fantasies such as Here Comes Mr Jordan and It's a Wonderful Life. Angel Grant responds to a bishop's plea for help after his devotion to his plans for a new cathedral has alienated him from family and parishioners. Cary's charm works as successfully upon audiences as it does upon the film's characters, and his relaxed wit plus Loretta Young's delicate loveliness makes for a frothily touching comedy.
