Today’s Movie is “The Bishop’s Wife” staring Cary Grant and Loretta Young. I am a huge fan of Cary Grant and will watch anything he is in, which is how I was first introduced to this movie. We touched on the story line when I reviewed the remake The Preacher’s Wife on Day 8.
Since you already know the basic story there’s no need to go into detail. I will say this movie was shot in black and white and there is no Whitney Houston to sing beautiful Christmas songs. In this version the Bishop’s last name is Brougham and they have a daughter instead of a son. Other than that it’s pretty much the story of a religious man who loses his way, asks God for help, receives help in the form of a gorgeous angel and finds his way again.
Here a favorite clip from the movie. I love Cary Grant’s smile and his facial expressions are classic.
I suggest curling up on the couch either alone with your Snuggie or with someone you love, eat some popcorn and enjoy this wonderful feature.
