Going My Way - 1944
Movie: Going My Way - 1944
Director: Leo McCarey
Synopsis: Youthful Father Charles "Chuck" O'Malley (Bing Crosby) is newly posted to Saint Dominic's - an inner city parish that has seen better days. He is to help aging Father Fitzgibbon (Barry Fitgerald) with the finances and the Building Fund, and to find "modern" ways to minister to the parish and its troubled youth. His colorful life of sports, song, and romance prior to becoming a priest will come in handy.
Scene: Having successfully trained the youth gang to be a choir, Father O'Malley takes them out for an evening on the town, then puts them on a bus to ride home, and decides to walk home and collect his thoughts. On the way he unexpectedly bumps into an old flame - Gennie Tuffel - who he broke up with by letter before becoming a priest. He discovers that his letter never arrived, and Gennie is surprised to find that he is now a priest. Father O'Malley is surprised to learn that Gennie is now Genevieve Linden (Risë Stevens) - an internationally acclaimed opera star who is headlining in "Carmen".
Monogram: Genevieve Linden in her back-stage dressing gown, with a large appliqué monogram "GL" surrounded by floral embellishments.
