When you've been running round the shops and your head is in a whirl with all the hustle and bustle leading up to Xmas, STOP... sit down and watch this film with a warm glass of mulled wine in front of the Xmas tree. At the end you will feel warm all over.
I have watched this film for years. I just love it. I adore Cary Grant anyway but him and David Niven are beautifully paired together. The wonder The Angel brings to everyone is magical. The scenes in the professor's house, the skating in the park, they just don't make films like this these days.
I would recommend everyone to watch this film leading up to Xmas, lose yourself in it and get back that Xmas feeling. WATCH IT!!
The most inspiring Christmas film ever, The Bishops Wife resists the overbearing sentimentality of other Christmas films and has not quite the harshness that I have found with parts of It's a Wonderful Life, its competitor for the title. Cary Grant and David Niven are perfectly cast as the Agel and the Bishop after early filming had the parts transposed. Niven who had sadly recently lost his real life wife, Primmie has all the angst of a man overburdened by work and lifes pressures. To see his prayers answered (and several of the other characters) by Grants angel is heartwarming and eye opening and gives us all a little hope. The film is perfect at Christmas but has a place at anytime of year especially for those looking for something to lift them from the ordinary in thier everyday lives. This has got to be one of the "must see" films of all time
This is probably the best Christmas film ever. It is better than the other great Christmas film (It's A Wonderful Life) in many respects. Guaranteed heartwarming B & W hollywood enjoyment. Perfect for a winters afternoon.
