Henry Brougham (Niven), a troubled bishop struggling to raise funds for a new cathedral, prays for guidance and is swiftly presented with a charming man named Dudley (Grant), professing to be an angel.

Henry is initially sceptical, but Dudley presses ahead, attending to Henry’s family and working his way into their good books.

Cary Grant is perfect as the debonair angel, who touches the lives of everyone in this oft-forgotten cosy Christmas classic.
