Winner of seven Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, the unforgettable classic Going My Way lights up the screen as it warms the heart. Best Actor winner Bing Crosby shines as Father O'Malley, a young priest new to an established but financially flailing parish. When his philosophies conflict with those of curmudgeonly Father Fitzgibbon (Best Supporting Actor winner Barry Fitzgerald), the result is a timeless story of patience, compromise and - just maybe - understanding. Featuring an all-new digitally remastered picture and filled with mesmerizing music including the Academy Award-winning song "Swinging on a Star," Going My Way exemplifies the silver screen at its golden best! "****! Hard to resist!" (Leonard Maltin)

All that aside, though, the end of the story isn't the surprise today that it no doubt was then, still is still well done by first rate actors. Bing Crosby, a Catholic himself, was well cast. Barry Fitzgerald is at his curmudgonly best. (If you like Barry, he has a great role in "The Quiet Man," and in Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None.")
I'd never seen it before today, can you believe it? Oh, and my follow-up is the Father O'Malley sequel, THE BELLS OF ST. MARY'S (1945), another Bing Crosby/Leo McCarey collaboration.
But that first movie! Little Risë Stevens* singing Carmen's famous "Habanera" aria at the Met, the Robert Mitchell Boy's Choir, Gene Lockhart as the greedy banker, and of course, Barry ('ya-ta-ta-ta-tum') Fitzgerald, an old Protestant crossing himself the wrong way as a monsignor! Alfalfa Switzer appears at the beginning, a teen with a changed voice but still that recognizable face.
It's fine storytelling in classic style; a great family movie. Do NOT miss this one, even if you aren't Catholic.
Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule?
*Note: This film proves that although Miss Stevens had a small voice she knew how to use it to great effect. Brava!
PS-- The 1994 MCA videotape of GOING MY WAY has Hi-Fi audio and a clean picture.
