Facts about

The first sequel to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
At the 1945 Academy Awards, Bing Crosby and Leo McCarey won the Best Actor and Best Director awards for Going My Way. When Ingrid Bergman won the Best Actress award for her role in Gaslight, she told the audience at the awards ceremony, "I'm glad I won, because tomorrow morning, I start shooting the sequel to 'Going My Way' with Bing Crosby and Leo McCarey, and I was afraid that if I didn't have an Oscar, they wouldn't speak to me."
"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on October 6, 1947 with Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman again reprising their film roles.
