Charming festive fantasy in which angel Cary Grant comes to earth to the aid of bishop David Niven who has began to question his faith. Spiritual without being preachy, good-natured and amusing, with a fun turn from cantankerous Monty Woolley who gets most of the best lines. Fans of It's A Wonderful Life will enjoy it and it was remade (badly) as The Preacher's Wife.
