The same qualities that make The Bells Of St. Mary's quaint are also the qualities that make it, if not great, then at least solidly entertaining.

Though the various irregular pieces of this movie make it one of McCarey's least satisfying movies on an artistic level, it's totally understandable as to why it's his most popular.

A classic of faith and values.

As Sister Benedict, Ingrid Bergman manages to combine beauty, great good humor and saintly dignity even while swinging a baseball bat.

[Bergman's] clashes with Crosby...are moments that will have an audience alternately laughing and sniffling.

Before singing nuns, there were singing priests, such as Bing Crosby as Father O'Malley in Leo McCarey's charming sequel that's better (and was more popular at the box-office) than the original, the 1944 Oscar-winner Going My Way.

Only a nitch less entertaining than 'Going My Way,' but Ingrid Bergman's nun helps in the balance.

Dripping with sentiment, but who cares when you've got Bergman as the singing nun?

Seldom has a sequel so completely transcended its predecessor.
