Location of the Story[edit]

The article says the film is set in New York City. The city in which St. Mary's is located is not stated in the film. Going My Way is apparently set in New York (references to the Metropolitan Opera and Jenny Linden's home on Long Island). O'Malley says upon his arrival at St. Mary's that he had a long train trip in a "day coach." This would suggest that St. Mary's is located in some other city (assuming O'Malley was coming from his prior Going My Way assignment of the previous year).

Screenplay?[edit]

I'd appreciate it if some Wikipedia editor could give me a link to a full screenplay of this movie. I'm curious especially about the scene in which Patsy reads her essay (actually the priest's essay, his effort to help her with the nun's assignment) on "common sense." I'd like to be able to quote that speech. Thanks. --Christofurio (talk) 21:32, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
