(1944) This movie is honestly amazing, touching, and includes an amazing soundtrack by Bing Crosby that makes you continue singing the songs! Amazing performance by the boys (choir) which just made this movie and story amazing! This movie reminded me of Dead Poet’s Society (1989), as it was a story of improvement. Ultimately, it shows that work can be fun, and that people shouldn’t get crazy into work. I didn’t completely understand why the church fire happened, but you kinda just need to assume it was the only such way to conclude the story. I give this film a 🌑🌑🌑🌑🌗/🌑🌑🌑🌑🌑 (4.5/5). This film won best picture in 1945, including 6 other Oscars. Nominated for a total of 10 Oscars, and Barry Fitzgerald, was the only person to be nominated for lead and supporting best actor, which he won best support actor. In addition, the film won best director, best writing (original story and screenplay), best music original song (“Swinging on a Star”), and best actor in a lead role.
