It is a big, slick production. The only thing it lacks is taste. Full Review
TIME Magazine
Dec 8, 2008
Rating: 2.5/5 -- Its feel-good sentiment ends up drowning the film in saccharine.
Jan 17, 2006
Rating: 5/5 -- With the formidable Gladys Cooper and Elsa Lanchester in supporting roles, it's a sweet, funny, captivating, altogether delightful picture, which too often gets omitted from lists of greatest-ever Christmas films. Full Review
Daily Mail (UK)
Dec 13, 2019
Rating: B- -- Cary Grant's suave, charismatic angel is the main reason to see craftsman Koster's sentimental, verbose serio-comedy about a bishop (David Niven) struggling with marriage and funds for new church; A Christmas staple along with It's a Wonderful Life. Full Review
Feb 12, 2008
Rating: 3/5 -- The playing from all three stars is enjoyable and the festive setting allows Grant to trim a Christmas tree with the flick of a finger. Full Review

Whatever you make of the minor miracles performed along the way, there's no trouble believing that Cary would fall for Loretta or that anybody would fall for Cary. Full Review

Product Description:

A harassed bishop's prayers are answered when an angel (played by Cary Grant) is sent from heaven to help him raise money for a new church. The heavenly agent performs a number of miracles on his behalf, restoring hope to all. A delightful comedy which was remade in 1996 by Penny Marshall as "The Preacher's Wife." Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Best Picture and Best Director. Academy Awards: Best Sound Recording.
