  • Angel On My Shoulder


    Paul Muni gives another classic performance in this wonderful fantasy about a notorious gangster who is murdered by a double-crossing partner. While in Hell, he makes a deal with the Devil, played with relish by Claude Rains, to return to earth. Muni plans to take the place of a candidate for governor, who happens to be a dead ringer for his spectral self, which enables him to revenge his premature demise while helping Satan recruit new souls with his new powerful governor status. Things backfire however, when the innate goodness of the real governor gradually starts to affect his replacement, turning Muni into a force for good in such a way even his Satanic Majesty doesn’t expect.moreless

    Gangster Eddie Lee (Paul Muni) is killed by a trusted lieutenant and finds himself in Harry Redmond Jr's special-effects Hell, where Nick/The Devil (Claude Rains) sees that he is an exact double for a judge who Nick doesn't approve of. Eddie is agreeable to having his soul transferred to the judge's body, as it will give him a chance to avenge himself on his killer. But every action taken by Eddie (as the judge) results in good rather than evil and, to Nick's dismay, the reputation and influence of the judge is enhanced, rather than impaired by Eddie. And Eddie also falls in love with the judge's fiancé, Barbara (Anne Baxter.) Even Eddie's planned revenge fails and Nick is forced to concede defeat. He returns to Hell, taking Eddie with him, after Eddie has extracted his promise that Nick will not molest the judge or Barbara in the future.moreless
