With songs like “The Day After Forever,” “Swinging on a Star,” and the title track, Going My Way quickly established itself as a musical masterpiece upon its release in May of 1944. (It went on to be the year’s most successful movie, bringing in a then-astonishing $7.8 million dollars and eventually garnering Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor). Packed with charming characters and an engaging storyline, the film stars Bing Crosby as Father Charles O’Malley, an Irish Catholic priest whose progressive views are challenged within his new New York City parish. With a smile on his face and a song in his heart, can Father Chuck win over a crusty elder father and the rest of his congregation? Director Leo McCarey’s masterpiece co-starred Barry Fitzgerald, Frank McHugh, and Gene Lockhart.
