Here Comes Mr Jordan 1941 Criterion Collection
Joe Pendleton (Robert Montgomery) is an up-and-coming boxer on his way to winning a championship title. When he ill-advisedly flies a plane to his next bout and crashes mid-journey, courier angel #7013 (played by the delightfully fussy Edward Everett Horton) unseasonably takes Joe up to heaven – only to realize that he wasn’t supposed to die for another 50 years! When Joe’s earthly body is swiftly cremated, the messenger and his boss, Mr. Jordan (Claude Rains), take responsibility, scouring the earth in search of another form that Joe’s spirit can inhabit. They soon locate a wealthy businessman who is about to be murdered by his wife and secretary – and in the hopes of making everything right and winning the heart of sympathetic victim Bette (Evelyn Keyes), Joe agrees to don the body (like a suit) in what will become an uproarious chain of incorporeal consciousness-hopping chaos...
