When a boxer is accidentally called to Heaven 50 years before his time, it's up to celestial executive extraordinaire Mr. Jordan to straighten out the matter. To play the saxophone-playing boxer Joe Pendelton, Columbia decided to borrow Robert Montgomery from MGM. Although Mongomery had some initial doubts about his part, he delivered what was to become an Oscar -nominated performance. The film received a total of seven 1941 nominations, including Best Picture, and won two (Best Motion Picture Story, Best Screenplay). Here Comes Mr. Jordan was remade in 1978 as "Heaven Can Wait," starring Warren Beatty. Here Comes Mr. Jordan is an essential title for any classic film lover's library!
