The Bishop's Wife (1947) (Hugo Friedhofer)

These are my favorite kinds of movies (comedies, fantasies, etc.) though I love a lot of different types of movies, now that I think about it. This movie used to be a staple of annual TV broadcasting, but it doesn't get shown much in this area anymore (at least on free television). I'm not even sure if it gets shown on cable now, but this is the score to the Cary Grant / Loretta Young / David Niven comedy in which Grant plays an angel sent to help clergyman, David Niven. It was later (as opposed to earlier) remade as The Preacher's Wife with Denzel Washington and the happily unmarried Whitney Houston.

And I would've normally posted the scores to It's a Wonderful Life & Miracle on 34th Street, but those are in storage. Maybe next year (here's hoping the blog is still around by then!). [And if you hunt around, I'm sure somewhere else in the blogosphere somebody must be sharing those.]

This score brings back a lot of happy memories of the film. When I used to think of this film, I considered it to be in the second tier, so to speak, of the holiday films. Not quite in the It's A Wonderful Life category since it seemed slightly flawed to me, but it really ameliorated in my mind later on. Any movie that has all three of those stars in it automatically has a lot going for it.

Hearing tracks like 'Central Park' automatically makes me think of Cary Grant, Loretta Young, and James Gleason skating and brings a smile to my face. James Gleason is hilarious in that scene. And you can't beat Hugo Friedhofer.

Cozy up by a warm fire and enjoy this angelic music just in time for Christmas!

If anyone has the Percepto release of Miracle on 34th Street and Come to the Stable, I'd love to have that.
 
Hi NOMWL1,

What a blessing to have happened upon your blog! This movie, anytime of the year for my wife and me, is one that restores our hope in mankind.

Christmastime is a special time to watch it though. We tear up at all of it and even now as I listen to this special music, I'm moved by it. Pure magic!

I wonder why this music isn't available to purchase online somewhere - it's just that special!

Merry Christmas. It's a great gift you've given by posting this music!

Regards,

Patrick
 
Many Blessings to you!
