The Bishop's Wife

On Facebook this morning I saw a post that asked for the name of a movie that you had watched more than five times.  My initial thought was "NO WAY"!  I can barely get myself to sit and watch once let alone five times.  Sitting is not my strong suit.  But as I actually thought about it, I realized I had watched one movie several times, probably at least 5.

The movie is, " The Bishop's Wife"* starring Cary Grant, Loretta Young, and David Niven-it's an old movie.  From the same era as "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. Most people probably won't recognize these actors but they were some of the biggest stars of their generation.

It is a wonderful movie with many life lessons beautifully woven into the script.  Some so subtle you almost miss them.  There is humor, and scenes that are so beautiful I can't think how to describe them.

I cannot think of a more uplifting movie.

 *Obviously, not a Roman Catholic Bishop.
