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
New York Times
Rating: B+ -- Grant's turn is thoroughly convincing because he himself appears to be having a terrific time: He's expansive, graceful, and seems always on the verge of chuckling with goodwill. Full Review
We cannot recommend you to a more delightful and appropriate Christmas show. Full Review
New York Times
A typically sanctimonious Hollywood Christmas fantasy that works mainly because of the charm of the performers. Full Review
While a fantasy, there are no fantastic heavenly manifestations. There's a humanness about the characters, even the angel, that beguiles full attention. Full Review
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
Rating: 2.5/5 -- Its feel-good sentiment ends up drowning the film in saccharine.
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.
