A canine angel, Charlie, sneaks back to earth from heaven but ends up befriending an orphan girl who can speak to animals. In the process, Charlie learns that friendship is the most heavenly gift of all.
On the soundtrack version of "Let Me Be Surprised", Charlie says "Damn that Carface, I'll kill him!" The "damn" was removed from the movie, though Charlie still mouths the word.
You must have taken dance lessons. You have natural rhythm, unusual in a whippet.
Despite Charlie being hit by a car pushed deliberately by Carface only the car is seen plunging into the water. This was probably due to the fact that seeing Charlie getting killed would be to dark for a kid's film.
The credits roll with several backgrounds of clouds resembling Heaven scrolling by.
The Blu-ray release plasters the United Artists logo with the MGM logo.
