The scene with the boy's choir and the closing sermon can make me cry every single time. (And it doesn't hurt that Henry's apparently an Episcopalian Bishop, and I'm Episcopalian!)

I've seen the remake, The Preacher's Wife, but except for a couple scenes, I don't think it was nearly as good. It's a pity, because it did have a good cast on paper, but it just seemed a little lifeless.
Anne, I agree with you 100%..."The Preacher's Wife" can't hold a candle to "The Bishop's Wife." Good cast, sure, but it seemed like the screenwriter, the director, and the crew just didn't get 'it.'

"The Bishop's Wife" is a tender, slice-of-life kind of movie. It was never meant to be a romantic comedy. When you watch TBW you literally feel your heart warm. You long for the world to return to the good feeling that was in the air back then; the way most people respected each other. You watch it and within minutes you become anxious for Christmas season to start. The ending makes you want to throw on your coat and boots and run straight to church to be a part of a very special night. That movie is pure magic. You can't manufacture the joyful, uplifting emotions it instills in you. Yes, Anne, a very good choice; the best.
