Editorial Reviews

In this charming television series remake of the OscarTM winning 1944 film Going My Way starring Bing Crosby, dancer and actor Gene Kelly (American in Paris) takes on Crosby's role of Father O'Malley, a Catholic priest sent to St. Dominick's, a poor parish in New York City. There he teams up with Father Fitzgibbon (Leo G. Carroll), the elderly pastor of St. Dom's, and his housekeeper Mrs. Featherstone (Nydia Westerman). As luck would have it, Father O'Malley's boyhood friend Tom, played by none other than Dick York ( Bewitched ), runs a secular youth center in the neighborhood. The guest cast of Going My Way was impressive. Among the many stars who appeared were Anne Francis and George Kennedy (A Man for Mary), Eddy Bracken and Harry Morgan (Like My Own Brother), Jack Warden (Not Good Enough for My Sister), Kevin McCarthy (Ask Me No Questions), Beverly Garland (A Saint for Mama), and James Whitmore (Tell Me When You Get to Heaven), just to name a few. Fifty years after its first broadcast in 1962, Going My Way's light touch and big-hearted themes make it great entertainment for the whole family with great acting and stories that touch the soul with warmth, humor and drama, as life's inescapable situations unfold, and are resolved in surprising ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good family show July 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
Never heard of this series before it was tagged as an Amazon recommendation based on my prior purchases. Decided to give it a try and have been pleasantly surprised at the heart-warming stories. All the characters are believable and there is a good mixture of drama, humor and pathos. Good life lessons as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars The way it used to be February 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
When I saw that this series from the early 1960's had been issued as a DVD set, I immediately ordered it. I really didn't remember much about it, but I'm a big fan of Gene Kelly, who never fails to disappoint. In this series, he brings his usual charm and easygoing personality to the role of Father O'Malley (the role Bing Crosby had made his own in the original film version). Leo G. Carroll is a surprise as the elderly pastor, Father Fitzgibbon. Who knew that he could take on an Irish brogue, dance a jig, and sing a delightful Irish tune? I didn't remember Dick York at all from the series when it was first on TV, but he is believable in the role of the youth center director (a role not in the film). I love this series for portraying a simpler time in a manner that just lets one sit back, relax, and enjoy. It's gentle and loving. How different from today's TV fare!

3.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had better news February 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
I'd never heard of the series until recently, and only stumbled across it after we recently enjoyed watching the film starring Bing Crosby. The cast is dynamite, and they are too good to fail at bringing life to the stories. But as much as I like Gene Kelly, he fails to invoke the unerring wisdom and gentle competence in the role that we enjoyed in the film. But it was a hard act to follow ... Crosby won a Best Actor Oscar for doing just what I described.

These stories are slowly paced but good hearted and with depth, just not as much depth as I had hoped for. Still, with a TV series of the early 60s, it is probably as much as one could hope for.

Sadly, the quality of the media has suffered. The image is dark and grainy. The sound is distorted and muddy to the point that at times I had trouble following the dialogue. I've seen TV reproductions from years earlier than this that are in pristine condition, so it's a shame that this unique series has suffered so from the ravages of time.

I'll give the quality of the show a 4, but the quality of the media a 2, and average it out to a 3. This is the very rare TV role for Gene Kelly, so I can't recommend against getting this. Any dedicated Gene Kelly fan will probably find something positive here, even if he doesn't dance much. LOL I know I did.

I'm not sorry to have made the purchase, but I am disappointed in the quality of the DVD presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series. March 24, 2012
By Brian

TV series of the Classic Bing Crosby film.This time Gene Kelly plays Father OMalley and Leo G (Topper)Carroll plays the Barry Fitzgerald part as Father Fitzgibbon.Dick York is Tom Colwell who runs the local club for kids.
Always a Great story with guest stars Galore,Ralph Meeker,Richard Carlson,William Demarest,Ed Begley,Frank Albertson,Henry Morgan,Ann Francis,George Kennedy,Eddie Bracken,Dan Duryea,etc to name but a few.
Gene is Great as ever.Leo G Carroll as well as sometimes bungling,but still loveable Father Fitzgibbon.
This is a Great Series.
My personal favorite episode was Like My Own Brother.Eddie Bracken and Harry Morgan are two brothers who dislike each other.Even Father OMally and Father Fitz cant do much to change things.The well meaning priests try to bring them together to patch things up,but can do little about it.There is a solution,watch it and find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heart warmer May 25, 2013
By CW
I never forgot this series from 1962-63. So glad it's finally available after many years of waiting. The episodes are so heartwarming and some will make you cry. And they all teach a moral lesson in a non-preachy way.
