Heavenly bells are ringing, jubilant choirs are singing and Christmas joy is blanketing the world like freshly fallen snow. But the Yuletide spirit has yet to warm Bishop Henry Brougham's Victorian home. Struggling to raise funds for a new cathedral, the preoccupied young clergyman has neglected his loving wife Julia, and now only divine intervention can save their marriage! But the powerful and handsome angel sent from above has a mind of his own... and teaching mortal Henry an immortal lesson in romance isn't all he's got planned!

This is, in my opinion, of the most beautiful films ever made! Set around the festive period, with magical happenings, the true meaning of family life realised and a happy ending, this is what all films should be like. Cary Grant and David Niven are on fine form. Everyone should watch this - preferably at Christmas. It gives a feeling of warmth, humour and contentment. I first watched this as a little girl with my late father. The magic has never waned. I still love it as much now as I did then. Fabulous!

One of my favourite old family movies: if you love the Christmas Season, you really should see this! Cary Grant is marvellous as the Angel, Dudley, and the rest of the cast is so well suited to their roles, too. I adore everything about this classic movie, (except for THE HAT! Watch out for it in the early scenes between Julia and Dudley. A hideous creation.) The special effects are truly wonderful, considering the age of the film, and remain memorable. Maybe today's viewer would want something more, but as I said, this is a classic movie, from the days when no-one had anticipated the innovation of CGIs - so people were quite amazed by what they saw.....Buy it, and watch it before Christmas (possibly best viewed on Christmas Eve with the kids?!) Black and white it may be, but that is soon forgotten when you really get into the story and characters....This comes from a time when life's pace was slower maybe? But magical times were had at Christmas, in the old days...... before we all wanted and expected so much from it......This movie's right up there with the traditional Christmas fare - please try it - you may even recapture those simple, gentler times.......

 The Christmas Spirit

Very few movies caputre the true meaning of Christmas and particularly the Christmas spirit so well as The Bishop's Wife. It had ground breaking special effects (for the time) and most of all, the movies message is one of hope. A fantastic movie for the family at any time of year.

This is a truly magical Christmas film which you simply must not miss. If you like feel-good flms, it's essential viewing.
