Full movie description "The Bishop Misbehaves":On a walking tour of English cathedrals, Donald Meadows meets Hester Granthem in church. Hearing he is from that hot-bed of crime, Chicago, Hester asks Donald to help her in a robbery she has planned. Thinking it a joke, he plays along; but Hester is serious, and hearing that she plans to rob Mr. Waller, the man who has cheated her father out of thousands of pounds, Donald agrees. A robbery at a pub is arranged, but the Bishop of Broadminster, an avid mystery fan, and his sister stumble into it. Playing detective the Bishop complicates matters and each side, the Bishop, the unscrupulous Waller, the gang Hester hires, and Hester and Donald, each get the upper hand along the way.
Reviews of the The Bishop Misbehaves"The Bishop Misbehaves" is a very unusual entry into the very crowded field of mystery films of the 1930s and 40s. Big studios, little studios and those in between ALL made a bazillion of these films...and most were, at best, mediocre. However, this film stands out because of its main character and his very odd way of dealing with crime. Edmund Gwenn plays an Anglican bishop who loves solving crimes and sadly it's a stand-alone film--no sequels were to follow. His style is VERY unconventional...and that's why I give the film a 7...it certainly isn't because of the rest of the writing.
When the film begins, a young lady (Maureen O'Sullivan) is despondent. Her father's been cheated by a scum-bag and you KNOW that he is because the introductory credits tell you that Reginald Owen is a jerk and a crook! He's stolen her father's secret formula and she's planning on hiring some folks to help steal it back--using her very complicated plan. Oddly, however, an American who just met her agrees to help her...even though it could potentially get him killed or sent to prison! Into the middle of this stumbles the Bishop and his sister and instead of being horrified, they are THRILLED...as he loves solving crimes and meddling. And, a charming meddler he is!
The film is good...but be aware that sometimes the writing disappoints. This is a b-movie after all and plot problems and holes are not all that uncommon in these style films. In this case, there are just too many twists and surprises--to the point of being absurd. Still, it's oddly enjoyable....mostly because you really like Gwenn's character.
