 Title  Going My Way
Two Irish priests sit down for a drinků sounds like the start of a good story. The setting is WWII era NYC where scores of raggedy boys look for danger but only find trouble. One priest still sounds like he's just off the boat yet is in America for 45 years. The other, the young Irish-American priest, is up with the city lingo and the latest jazz style. Both are carrying on a long tradition: a tradition of service to the poor, a tradition of educating the young, a tradition of building churches, and a tradition of community leadership. This film is from a time when priests still held great respect and, yes, a great many of them were Irish. Incidentally, the gang in this film is a spinoff of the East Side Kids of the Bowery Boys series fame. See also: Angels with Dirty Faces Link to reviews Click picture
