Tonight was one of those evenings that I love...the decorating is almost done so all the twinkling white lights were lit and Bill came home with take out Chinese food. The snow was falling ever so gently outside and it just felt so cozy to be inside with my family. Yes, there is still much to be finished and work that needs to done but for tonight we just decided to enjoy some down time. We let Bill choose the movie and his choice? A true holiday classic, "The Bishop's Wife" starring Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven. The wonderful supporting cast includes the incomparable Monty Wooley and Elsa Lanchester.
Bishop Henry Brogham prays for divine guidance with the troubled building of a new
cathedral. His plea is seemingly answered by a handsome and ever so suave angel
named Dudley who reveals his true identity initially only to the clergyman. However, Dudley's mission isn't to help with the construction of the cathedral. He is there as a guide to Henry and the people around him. Henry has become obsessed with the building of the new cathedral, to the detriment of his duties and marriage with his neglected, unhappy wife, Julia. Everyone, except for Henry, is charmed by the newcomer, even the non-religious Professor Wutheridge.
And so the story unfolds...
It is a sweet and charming, wholesome and heartwarming film. I could easily believe that Cary Grant WAS an angel...who wouldn't?I do hope you are all well and will enjoy a wonderful weekend. I am still fighting with a cold virus but little does it know that I am determined to win this battle! Too much to do to be sick! Be good to yourselves and smile often...I think all of you are perfect in every way! Love and Hugs, Susie Q
