MARY'S" —with Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman The first time in the history of movies, towns as small as Postville and even smaller are playing this phenomenal film five and even six days. And playing it to huge crowds. The movie industry thought "The Birth of A Nation" had established box office records that would never be equalled. From 1916 to 1929 those records stood. However, Al Jolson's first all-talking film, "The Singing Fool" went way out in front. Ten years later "Gone With The Wind" grossed ten million dollars. Then came Bing's "Going My Way" to even surpass that one. And now. four years later. "THE BELLS OF ST. MARY'S" is making movie history. I cannot, nor can anyone else, give you the reason. People just seem to go for the film. People of all races and all creeds. And of all ages. There are, no doubt, many reasons for its terrific success, but the most outstanding reason seems to be the tremendous spiritual uplift that it brings to each and every person in the vast audiences.
