“Holden is a kind of leather-jacketed variation of Bing Crosby’s sweatshirted Father O’Malley and Webb a wry, caustic version of Barry Fitzgerald’s Father Fitzgibbon in McCarey’s Going My Way (1944).”
“Indicative of the radical generosity of McCarey’s directorial personality. He tried to extend the chance of forgiveness and redemption…to even his most repulsive characters. Indeed, forgiveness, possibly the single most important theme of Christianity, is one of McCarey’s major themes.”
– Paul Harrill, Senses of Cinema
The great director Leo McCarey’s final film, Satan Never Sleeps (1962) stars William Holden and Clifton Webb as a pair of priests struggling to maintain a mission post during Mao’s 1949 Chinese Communist revolution. Complicating matters is the presence of a lovely young girl (France Nuyen) unfortunately in love with Holden’s Father O’Banion. Adapted by Claude Binyon and McCarey from a story by Pearl S. Buck, and featuring music by Richard Rodney Bennett and cinematography by that superb imagist, Oswald Morris.
