Storyline

Father Conroy (Crosby) has a parish which serves the acting and performance community. When one of his parishoners gets too sick to work, his daughter Holly (Reynolds) finds a job working for a dance club of questionable character, which is run by Tony Vincent (Wagner). Vincent never made the big time, and Father Conroy tries to look after Holly. There are many musical numbers, and the conclusion is a televised benefit show hosted by Father Conroy, and Tony must choose between Holly and national fame.

Quotes

[Father Conroy tries to reform Phil, an alcoholic]
Phil Stanley: I'm a little too old to still believe in Santa Claus.
Father Conroy: That's too bad, Phil. He still believes in you.
Phil Stanley: You're not talking about Santa Claus.
Father Conroy: Neither are you. You think you're going to find out what you lost in that bottle?
Phil Stanley: Maybe in the next one. I haven't tried all the bottles yet. But maybe I should get the Christmas spirit. Isn't this time of year when all the little girls and boys suddenly start to behave?

Very good and underrated move
8 December 2002 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It's a shame this movie is not available in VHS or DVD. Very good acting by Ray Walston and Debbie Reynolds. Same solid acting and singing from Bing Crosby as he always gives. Why the critics panned this one is beyond me. Robert Wagner displayed very good singing and acting skills in this one and with all due respect to Debbie Reynolds in this one she was "hot". It's also a treat to see a very young Stella Stevens. All in all a good feel good movie. I highly recommend it.
