The Charm of Music

I've been watching all the movies that have won Oscars for Best Picture. The next one I hadn't seen was Going My Way, the 1944 winner, starring Bing Crosby as a priest who saves a troubled parish through his charm and musical talents.

Of the musicals to win Best Picture by that year, it was by far the best.

First, I want to mention the 1943 winner, a little film called Casablanca. You might have heard of it. It beat out challengers For Whom the Bell Tolls, Heaven Can Wait, The Human Comedy, In Which We Serve, Madame Curie, The Ox-Bow Incident, The Song of Bernadette and Watch on the Rhine.
