About the Event
The versatile Cary Grant takes the part of a mild-mannered angel attired in a pedestrian, nondescript business suit in this enchanting fantasy about his mission to help the marriage of a Protestant bishop who is preoccupied with fundraising for a new cathedral at the expense of his neglected wife. The skating scene, to the music of Hugo Friedhofer, has been called as near to poetry as film can get. Robert Nathan’s 1928 novel is brought to life by director Henry Koster, whose collection is preserved in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections. The music and papers of Academy Award-winning composer Friedhofer are also a part of the holdings of Special Collections. The limited edition original soundtrack CD, a product of the BYU Film Music Archive, will be available at a special price to those attending this showing. Samuel Goldwyn/ RKO, 1947. 109 mins. Director: Henry Koster.
