Angel on My Shoulder
- movie Description
Angel on My Shoulder follows gangster Eddie Kagel (Paul Muni) who exchanges his time in hell for a chance at redemption. Eddie was killed by a trusted partner in his crime family and, unable to believe he is supposed to spend eternity in hell, he strikes a bargain with the Nick (Claude Rains), the devil. Seeing Eddie is a perfect look-alike for meddlesome do-gooder Judge Frederick Parker, who is disagreeably honest. The judge is seeking a seat in the Senate, and would wield even more influence if that were to happen. Nick agrees to switch Eddie's soul for Parker's. Eddie jumps at the chance to escape hell and take revenge on the man who killed him. The plan goes awry, however, when every action Eddie takes results in more good and more favorable influence for the judge. Eddie starts to see the error of his past life and falls in love with the judge's fianc''e, Barbara Foster (Anne Baxter). Nick loses patience with the scheme and returns to collect on the bargain. The 1946 film was directed by Archie Mayo.moreless
