In the meantime, a lucky find from the vintage magazine collection; click on the images from Screenland, 1946--although the film was made in 1945...First, a little history:The Bells of St. Mary's is a 1945 American drama film produced and directed by Leo McCarey and starring Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman.
Written by Dudley Nichols based on a story by Leo McCarey, the film is about a priest and a nun who, despite their good-natured rivalry, try to save their school from being shut down. The character of Father O'Malley had been previously portrayed by Crosby in the 1944 film Going My Way, for which Crosby had won the Academy Award for Best Actor.
(And in your editor's humble opinion, this film has stellar performances by just about everyone, including Henry Travers, whose most famous role was the guardian angel in another Christmas favorite, It's a Wonderful Life.) p.s. CHECK TCM.COM for when these films will be playing this holiday season.
