COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Director (feature film)

1.
Abie's Irish Rose (1946) as Director
Anne Nichols updated her original play by moving the time to the (then) present by starting the film with the V-E Day celebration in London, but no fundimental changes otherwise. This first film from Bing Crosby's production company (known as Bing Crosby Producers, Inc. and not as Bing Crosby Productions) was released in the US with a "General Audience" classification (and not the unknown-in-1946 classification of "Unrated") and starred newcomers Joanne Dru (Rosemary Murphy)and Richard Norris (Abie Cohen) in the roles defined in the title. Their respective fathers and mothers are none too keen on Abie and Rosemary's oil-and-water romance, and get even less keener when the two are married by a Protestant minister, a marriage that is quickly done again by a Jewish rabbi and then again by a Catholic priest. The contrast between Yiddish and Celtic dialects and religious practices is also maintained. Providence lends a helping hand at the end to effect the reconciliation of the fathers to their respective children and the choice they have made.
