A Los Angeles Rams quarterback, accidentally taken away from his body by an overanxious angel before he was meant to die, returns to life in the body of a recently murdered millionaire.
Third and final of three collaborations of actor Warren Beatty and actress Julie Christie. The films are Shampoo (1975), Heaven Can Wait (1978) and McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971). Christie and Beatty were former participants in a personal relationship when they made Heaven Can Wait (1978), having broken up in 1974. Under The name of "Jules", Beatty dedicated Christie a dedicatee for his next movie, the epic picture Reds (1981).
He's lookin' awful good.
