Going My Way is a heart-warming and original film that captured seven Oscars®, including Best Actor, Best Picture and Best Director. Youthful Father Chuck O'Malley (Bing Crosby, Blue Skies) led a colorful life of sports, song, and romance before joining the Roman Catholic clergy, but his level gaze and twinkling eyes make it clear that he knows he made the right choice.
When he arrives to join the congregation at an old established church, things get complicated. St. Dominic's crusty old Father Fitzgibbon (Barry Fitzgerald, The Quiet Man) doesn't think much of O'Malley or his ideas. These two priests simply can't agree. But when O'Malley's fresh methods succeed in reaching out to the neighbourhood's toughest kids the community starts to change. The neighbourhood becomes closer as eh church's meaning grows dearer to their souls.
Going My Way is filled with music, from the classic Ave Maria sung by Metropolitan Opera star Risë Stevens, to the light-hearted Three Blind Mice and the Academy Award® winning Swinging on a Star.
