I think The Bells of St. Marys is quite a bit better. Bing Crosby's best actor Oscar for Going My Way is the only one Ive seen in person though. Pretty neat.

Yikes! I was going to rate that one a 9, but I haven't seen it recently enough. It's so sweet! Like Miracle on 34th Street-sweet, but better crafted!

edit: McCrary?! Maybe I should fix that.

Miracle on 34th St is at least somewhat respectful to those who don't agree with its worldview. I'd watch it over Going My Way any time.

Hmm, interesting. I'll definitely have to queue up Going My Way this winter and see what you're talking about.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

By my calculations, after 12 voters submitted.

A Man and a Woman should be in there somewhere ... I think.

I'll also be making a slight adjustment to the averages based on the number of votes on which each is based.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
