Starring Robert Montgomery, Evelyn Keyes, Claude Rains, Rita Johnson, Edward Everett Horton
Classic romantic comedy about a boxing contender (Joe Pendleton) who is mistakenly taken to heaven too soon by a rookie angel. To remedy the situation, the man in charge (Mr. Jordan) steps in to find a body for Joe. This film has inspired a couple of remakes-Heaven Can Wait (1978) and Down to Earth (2001)-and I’ve enjoyed each one while having the same problem with their endings. Robert Montgomery and Claude Rains are fantastic though.
