This GOING MY WAY sequel stars Bing Crosby, reprising his role as worldly-wise Father Chuck O’Malley, and introduces Crosby’s beloved song "Aren’t You Glad You’re You?" Father O’Malley is transferred to the soon-to-be-condemned school run by Sister Benedict (Ingrid Bergman), and the two quickly match wits and stubbornness, eventually finding a middle ground. A surprisingly light touch of sentimentality and humor gives this film by director Leo McCarey a glow of genuine feeling that effortlessly captures viewers’ hearts.

I saw this movie when I was a lyoung girl and loved it Bing Crosby as the preist is wonderful and Ingred Burgman as mother superia is as usual excellent I love the old fashion morals of this story and it was good to watch something with no fowel language or violence and the singing voice of Bing brings back the memories of his other movies that i watched as a young girl and would love to get my hands on them. Wonderful family movie

Really enjoyable especially for the singing. Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergmann are both delightful.
