Going My Way (1944)

Today, we may prefer 1944 releases like Double Indemnity, Meet Me in St. Louis or To Have and Have Not, but during WWII, audiences really responded to Leo McCarey's gooey, warm, comfortable Going My Way. It showed a world in which faith still existed, and in which a smile, a wink, a little humor, and a small miracle could preserve a way of life. The movie received ten Oscar nominations and won seven of those. Part of the reason for one of the losses was that Barry Fitzgerald was nominated twice, in both the leading and supporting categories. (He won for supporting, while star Bing Crosby won in the lead category.) read more...

Babe (1995)

Babe is the story of a little pig (voiced by E. G. Daily), won by Farmer Hoggett (James Cromwell) at a state fair to be raised for Christmas dinner. By the time Christmas comes around, Hoggett and his wife (Magda Szubanski) decide to keep him to exhibit him in the fair. Before the fair comes along, Babe expresses an interest, and a talent, in sheepdogging, a talent that the farmer (called "the Boss" by the animals) picks up on. When his prize sheepdog is put out of commission, he enters Babe in a sheepdog contest. read more...

The Bells of St. Mary's (1945)

Thanks to re-releases and some kind of immense, inherent audience draw (as well as a kind of Christmas vibe), Leo McCarey's The Bells of St. Mary's remains among the top 50 highest-grossing films of all time, in the adjusted-for-inflation list. It's the sequel to McCarey's Oscar-winning Going My Way (1944), and it too was nominated for a bunch of Oscars -- eight, to be exact -- though it won only one, for Best Sound. It played up the sex appeal of the beautiful Ingrid Bergman, even though she's never seen out of her nun's habit. Bring Crosby was nominated again for Best Actor for reprising his role as Father O'Malley, even though it looks as if he's confused throughout most of the movie. read more...
