A Touch of Lubitsch

Heaven Can Wait

United States | 1943 | Ernst Lubitsch

Heaven Can Wait

Lubitsch’s delightful late comedy (and the only Technicolor film in our series) stars Don Ameche as a recently deceased dandy and roué who shows up at the gates of Hell and tries to convince the Devil that his sinful life during the Gay Nineties (seen in flashback) qualifies him for eternal damnation. “Five stars (highest rating)…The most joyful fantasy-love story ever filmed.” –Video Movie Guide 1998. With Gene Tierney.

112 min. 35mm color print from the Twentieth Century Fox studio archive!

Special thanks to Caitlin Robertson and Joe Reid. FYI, Warren Beatty’s 1978 Heaven Can Wait is not a remake of this film but of Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941).
