Going my way (127 min.): When old and fading St. Dominic's Church gets a new priest (Crosby), things are bound to change. For starters, young Father O'Malley meets the crusty old Father Fitzgibbon (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 neighborhood roughnecks to open their hearts and minds in a way the old priest simply could not do.
