Rating: 2.5/4 -- One can see why those who love the film love it to this day and have such warm memories of it, although those approaching it for the first time may wonder what all the fuss is about. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- The same qualities that make The Bells Of St. Mary's quaint are also the qualities that make it, if not great, then at least solidly entertaining. Full Review

Though the various irregular pieces of this movie make it one of McCarey's least satisfying movies on an artistic level, it's totally understandable as to why it's his most popular. Full Review

As Sister Benedict, Ingrid Bergman manages to combine beauty, great good humor and saintly dignity even while swinging a baseball bat. Full Review

Rating: B -- Before singing nuns, there were singing priests, such as Bing Crosby as Father O'Malley in Leo McCarey's charming sequel that's better (and was more popular at the box-office) than the original, the 1944 Oscar-winner Going My Way. Full Review

Product Description:

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.
