Heritage House Arts Center screens "The Bishop's Wife"
As Pulse film critic John DeVore has lamented, Chattanooga often misses out on the less-than-mainstream film screenings. At least at the various metroplexes. However, the folks at the Heritage House Arts and Civic Center have been doing their part in bringing classic films to new audiences.
This week, they showcase the 1947 Samuel Goldwyn romantic comedy “The Bishop’s Wife,” starring Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven. The plot of the romantic farce centers around Niven’s Bishop Henry Brougham, who troubled with funding the building of a new cathedral, prays for divine guidance.
His plea is seemingly answered by a suave angel named Dudley, portayed with wit and whimsy by Cary Grant, who reveals his identity only to the clergyman. Except the meaning of his visit isn’t about “fundraising.”
