Heaven Can Wait

In this restored digital transfer of Ernst Lubitsch's witty classic, newly deceased playboy Henry Van Cleve (Don Ameche) tries to convince Satan he's got what it takes to be a citizen of hell. Unsatisfied that Van Cleve's sins are hell-worthy, the devil listens as the dead man recounts his womanizing ways and the many heartbreaks he's caused his loving wife (Gene Tierney). Extras include a biography of screenplay writer Samson Raphaelson.
