| Amusing B-comedy
Funny B-comedy from MGM. Morgan plays a man who dies and leaves his family in a tight spot. When his father (Wynn) arrives to fetch him to heaven, it's up to them (as ghosts) to make sure Morgan's fetching daughter (Totter, in a rare lilly-white role) gets hitched and that Morgan's partner (Kellaway) doesn't rip the family off on his most recent investment.

The gimmick of having the middle-aged Wynn play elderly Morgan's father pays off with some witty jokes and the 2 stars' wonderful playing off each other. It's interesting to speculate whether if Ed Wynn had been playing movie roles at this time he would have been cast as Keenan's son, thus making this ridiculous situation even more amusing.

A quality script and cast with OK production (directing and photography) produces a likeable, funny situational comedy.
