Going My Way/The Glenn Miller Story DVD


Going My Way (Dir. Leo McCarey): When an old and fading St. Dominic's church gets a young new priest (Crosby) things are bound to change. For starters young Father O'Malley meets the crusty old Father Fitzgibbons (Barry Fitzgerald) who doesn't think much of him or his ideas. The two have their differences but O'Malley is able to inspire some neighbourhood roughnecks to open their hearts and minds in a way the old priest simply could not do. Once the change has begun the church starts to find its way back into the lives of those who live near its doors and its... meaning to all involved grows dearer to their souls. The air is filled with music from the classic 'Ave Maria' sung by Metropolitan Opera star Rise Stevens to the Academy Award-winning 'Swinging On a Star'. Also winner of the Oscar for Best Film in 1945. The Glenn Miller Story (Dir. Anthony Mann 1953): The true story of an unassuming band leader and trombonist Glenn Miller (played by James Stewart) who got his first break playing his own arrangement of 'Everybody Loves My Baby' at an audition. He never looked back. He married his childhood sweetheart and everything he played became an instant hit...songs like 'Moonlight Serenade' 'String of Pearls' and 'Tuxedo Junction'. Hollywood beckoned and success piled upon success. But then came World War II. A war from which Glenn Miller never returned. He was on his way to Paris to entertain the American Forces when his plane disappeared. But the show had to go on...and Glenn Miller became a legend. The film features all of Glenn Miller's hits and there are many guest performances who make this film an all time classic. Winner of an Oscar for Best Sound in 1955. [show more]
