An outdated if charming piece on the life of a Canadian doctor in training who decides to become a Minister and drags his family across the western U.S. to attend to the faithful. He gets into many battles and seems un-Minister like when he talks about wanting to give people a good thrashing. Nonetheless, this is a passable drama.

Delightful slice of Americana, with warm and wonderful performaces by Fredric march and martha Scott. The supporting cast is superb, especially Beulah Bondi, Gene Lockhart, Harry Davenport and Laura Hope Crews.The plot is about a minister and his wife, the problems the encounter along the way. The best scene is where March and his son attend their first movie.

The underrated Fredric March gives a wonderful performance in this religious picture. It balances comedy and drama very well, offering laughs and wonderful dramatic moments. A nice little movie that's sure to make you smile.

OK, this is a beautifully acted film (Fredric March was incapable of less than a superb performance) about a man who gives up everything to be a good minister. Fine direction by Irving Rapper, wonderful Max Steiner score. The ending is terribly moving. But....SPOILERS: Near the climax, Spence's son is kicked out of school due to a false accusation that he got a girl pregnant. To his credit, his dad believes his son, contacts the girl and gets the truth, then tracks down the rich gossip in his congregation who falsely accused his son. But instead of clearing his son's name, he blackmails her into donating the mighty church he's been trying throughout the movie to get built. He even tells the son his reputation isn't as important as this. And the script (by Casey Robinson) was based on a biography written by that son, Hartzell Spence. And Norman Vincent Peale ("The Power of Positive Thinking") was a credited advisor. What the hell was everyone thinking??

(1941) One Foot In Heaven

Speaking as a non- christian or any other religion for that matter- I have to say this film is very well made! Starring in this film has one of my all time favorite actors, 2 time Oscar winner Frederic March as Father Spence as he and his family travel from one town or city after another and the obstacles that come with it! Since this film is about a real life person and his challenges as a minister this film cannot be looked at as an biography and should only be looked at as a film of great storytelling! It also has an awesome way to end a film!
