  • There's the hint of romance between Grant and Young, for example, which is definitely not what the film is about, and yet you get a sense that maybe Grant wishes there could be, and vice versa

      One of the most loved and cherished of the holiday classics is The Bishop’s Wife from 1947. Starring Cary Grant, David Niven, and Loretta Young, it’s an enchanting story of a bishop, his wife, and a Christmas visitor. It’s magical and everything good that a movie for the season should be.

      With Grant, Niven, and Young heading


      the cast, there’s no question about the superb acting present in The Bishop’s Wife. It’s awesome.

      What’s so neat about the relationship between these characters is that it’s almost a guessing game as to what their relationships actually are. There’s the hint of romance between Grant and Young, for example, which is definitely not what the film ...


      • is about, and yet you get a sense that maybe Grant wishes there could be, and vice versa.

        One of the best of the supporting players is Monty Woolley as the blind Professor Wutheridge. He has insight, and at the end, he leaves us with a priceless expression.

        The one moment this film didn’t need to have was an

        ice skating sequence between Grant and Young. The perimeter of the scene was okay, but when they supposedly started skating like professionals, it jumped ship. There was just no way it was those two, and every time I see the scene it pulls me out of the story.

        Never the less, The Bishop’s Wife is a solid performer.
