(101 min) A charming remake of a successful 1941 picture Here Comes Mr. Jordan, Heaven Can Wait was an enormous hit, taking in $77 million in the days before such numbers became comonplace. Frank Rich of the New York Times wrote that Heaven Can Wait “has everything going for it: big laughs, populist politics, billowy sequences set in heaven, a murder plot, a climactic Super Bowl game, a supporting cast of choice comic actors, and best of all, a touching romance….” Starring Warren Beatty, Elaine May, Robert Towne, James Mason and Buck Henry.


In June we will feature four innovative, fun, widely varied romantic comedies from the 70s and 80s. Trivia: Do you know which of these movies features a man known as “Jaws”?
