HEAVEN CAN WAIT (CRITERION COLLECTION / 1943) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Laird Cregar, Allyn Joslyn, Signe Hasso, Helene Reynolds, Aubrey Mather, Michael Ames, Louis Calhern, Gene Tierney, Don Ameche, Charles Coburn, Marjorie Main, Eugene Pallete, Spring Byington
Directed By:  Ernst Lubitsch

Deceased playboy Henry Van Cleve (Don Ameche) presents himself to the outer offices of Hades, where he asks a bemused Satan for permission to enter through the gates of hell. Though the devil doubts that Henry’s sins qualify him for eternal damnation, Henry proceeds to recount a lifetime of wooing and pursuing women, his long, happy marriage to Martha (Gene Tierney) notwithstanding. Ernst Lubitsch’s Heaven Can Wait, nominated for Academy Awards for best picture and director, is an enduring classic that showcases the filmmaker’s trademark blend of wit, urbanity, and grace.
