THE BISHOP’S WIFE (Theatrical Release USA 1947)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Bishop’s Wife
becomes a perfect example of all the softer nuances that are missing in many modern films...the cameo shots of facial expressions, an innocence in activity, no hidden or unwanted surprises. This is a film to appreciate for the clean feeling one experiences after viewing. One of the better stories on the market; a sit back and be entertained film.
