The Bishop's Wife is a feature film from director Henry Koster and producer Samuel Goldwyn. The movie follows troubled bishop, Henry Brougham (David Niven), who is obsessed with constructing a new cathedral for his parishioners. After praying to God for help, a charming angel appears to him, but Dudley (Cary Grant) is not there for the purpose of helping with the cathedral. Henry resents Dudley because of his apparent lack of help and the fact that everyone else in the church loves him. He feels that he is losing the love of his wife and the devotion of his followers to a suave and, at least to Henry, infuriating celestial being. Hilarious antics ensue as Dudley offers help to churchgoers in unexpected ways while Henry continues to resent the angel's actions and ignore his own shortcomings. The romantic comedy was originally released on December 9, 1947 and won an Academy Award for sound.
