Episcopalian biship Henry (Niven) is praying to find the money to build a new church but his faith is shaky and his marriage to Julia (Young) even more so. But his prayers are answered (although Henry doesn't know it) in the form of angel Dudley (Grant), who's sent down to earth at Christmas to help work things out. Excellent performances by the cast make this an entertaining outing. Based on the novel by Robert Nathan.

Essential Christmas viewing, this movie is sweet w/o being sappy, has a moral w/o being preachy (though it ends w/ a sermon), and stars a young Cary Grant. What more could one want? I'd happily watch it every year!
