Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
It took some doing to persuade the staunchly Catholic Bing Crosby to play a happy-go-lucky priest in Going My Way; luckily he acquiesced, winning an Academy Award in the process. Crosby is cast as Father Chuck O'Malley, newly arrived at rundown, heavily in debt St. Dominic's Church. Father Fitzgibbon Barry Fitzgerald, the cranky, set-in-his-ways curate of St. Dominic's, is none too pleased with O'Malley's breezy, "modernistic" methods. Fitzgibbon is content to adhere to the policies he has followed for nearly 45 years. Without overtly challenging Fitzgibbon's authority he likes the old buzzard, and the feeling is mutual, O'Malley sets about to win the confidence of the local street toughs, organizing the boys into an angelic church choir. He also forestalls the plans of St. Dominic's mortgage holder Ted Haines Gene Lockhart to evict Fitzgibbons by arranging a fundraising choir tour, to be headlined by O'Malley's childhood friend, opera star Genevieve Linden Rise Stevens. When he's not coming to the rescue of St. Dominic's, O'Malley is smoothing the path of romance for Haines' son James Brown and orphaned Carol James Jean Heather, and arranging for a reunion between Fitzgibbons and his nonagenarian Irish mother. There is sentiment by the bucketful in Going My Way, but director Leo McCarey sagaciously tempers the treacle with moments of genuine hilarity and several delightful and seemingly spontaneous musical interludes. In addition to Crosby, Oscars went to Barry Fitzgerald, Leo McCarey, screenwriters Frank Butler and Frank Cavett, and Burke and Van Heusen's song hit "Swingin' On a Star." Bing Crosby repeated his father O'Malley characterization in McCarey's 1945 sequel The Bells of St. Mary's. / Bing Crosby also stars, along with Fred Astaire, in Holiday Inn as a popular nightclub song-and-dance team. When his heart is broken by his girlfriend, Crosby decides to retire from the hustle-bustle of big city showbiz. He purchases a rustic New England farm and converts it to an inn, which he opens to the public floor show and all only on holidays. This barely logical plot device allows ample space for a steady flow of Irving Berlin holiday songs including an incredible blackface number in honor of Lincoln's Birthday. Oddly enough, the most memorable song in the bunch, the Oscar-winning "White Christmas", is not offered as a production number but as a simple ballad sung by Crosby to an audience of one: leading lady Marjorie Reynolds. Fred Astaire's best moment is his Fourth of July firecracker dance. Ah, but what about the plot? Well, it seems that Astaire wants to make a film about Crosby's inn, starring their mutual discovery Reynolds. Bing briefly loses Reynolds to Astaire, but wins her back during the filming of a musical number on a Hollywood soundstage eleven years earlier, Bing enjoyed a final clinch with Marion Davies under surprisingly similar conditions in Going Hollywood. As with most of Irving Berlin's "portfolio" musicals of the 1940s, the song highlights of Holiday Inn are too numerous to mention. This delightful film is far superior to its unofficial 1954 remake, White Christmas. Hal Erickson

    Are they good? Yes, they are good.

    I first watched Going My Way a year ago, and this month Holiday Inn gently blasted my world with good songs, good actors, and very good dance routines. GMY, though a little long, makes you really live the story with the little ol' priest from the land of the shamrocks, and the cheerful Father O'Malley. It blends humor, faith, and music together in a wonderful tapestry of colors. Holiday Inn- well, what can I say? It made me dance. It was my first Fred Astaire movie, and my second time with Crosby. They make a wonderful duet of the fool and the quiet man. It makes you wish they had done routines for every day of the year! If you are just considering buying this DVD, I really suggest you do, because you will never regret it.
