HEAVEN CAN WAIT (1943)
Recently deceased New York dandy Henry Van Cleve (Don Ameche) arrives at the gates of Hell, where he presents his credentials for eternal damnation to a bemused, but not particularly impressed, Satan (Laird Cregar). Van Cleve may have lived a long life of wooing the fairer sex, despite his long and happy marriage to Martha (Gene Tierney), but he's no ladykiller. Ernst Lubitsch's late-career charmer features a colorful cast of character actors, including Charles Coburn, Marjorie Main, Spring Byington, Eugene Pallette, Signe Hasso and Louis Calhern. DIR/PROD Ernst Lubitsch; SCR Samson Raphaelson, from the play "Birthday" by Leslie Bush-Fekete. U.S., 1943, color, 112 min. NOT RATED
