A well shot and acted musical staring Bing Crosby as the ever present "new" priest. This is worth a luck for those of you looking for a feel good, well done early 40's movie. It doesn't really show its date, but people may be turned off.

Review - Going My Way (1944)

Father Fitzgibbon (Barry Fitzgerald) was getting along in years when the bishop sent Father Chuck O'Malley (Bing Crosby) to help the church out of financial trouble. The two learn to get along in the Best Picture winning film “Going My Way.”

What I like about this movie is that it makes you feel good without forcing it on you. The emotion is subtle and yet impacting. Crosby gives a charming performance, while Fitzgerald gives a classic and lovable one. I might add that both of them won Best Actor and Supporting Actor, respectively. The film won four other awards (Director, Song, Story, and Screenplay), all of which it rightly deserved.

The film does have many faults though. While the story is relatively solid, there are a few events that seem either random or unnecessary. There are ...
