Description
Your collection of classic holiday movies is not complete without "The Bishop's Wife" DVD. This heartwarming film about an angel who comes to earth to help a young bishop was nominated for five Academy Awards. Released in 1947 and directed by Henry Koster, this moving story also stars Loretta Young, David Niven, and Elsa Lanchester. It was recently remade as "The Preacher's Wife" with costars Denzel Washington and Whitney Houston, but this original version is a must-see for any fan of Cary Grant movies.

          This is another one of my feel good movies. I guess because of the time that it was made, in the 40s, I was a youngster and it brings back the sights, sounds and smells ( in my mind ) of my Christmas childhood days. It's just a nice movie, did I mention.... Cary Grant? :)
