An Episcopal Bishop, Henry Brougham, has been working for months on the plans for an elaborate new cathedral which he hopes will be paid for primarily by a wealthy, stubborn widow.

Cary Grant plays an angel who brightens everybody's day.
Holiday favorite with a fine cast. Cary Grant is the angel who entrances women the way Peter O'Toole did in 'What's New, Pussycat" but we're on a little firmer moral ground here. Fine supporting cast includes James Gleason as the skating taxi cab driver and Monty Wooley as the history professor.
