Casablanca & The Bells of St. Mary's

Resistance leader Victor Laszlo is wanted by the Nazis and his only hope is Rick (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one, especially Victor's wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman). Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's transport out of the country and Rick must choose between personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance.
THE BELLS OF ST. MARY’S
(1945, 126 min)
Bing Crosby stars as Father O'Malley, who’s sent to revive a financially ailing parochial school and finds himself at odds with no-nonsense Sister Benedict (Ingrid Bergman). Beyond their delightful battle of wits lies a bigger problem---the skinflint businessman next door wants St. Mary's condemned so he can build a parking lot. Only a miracle can save St. Mary's now.
