  • Alert
    A beguiling fantasy comedy that accompanies a restless spirit from Earth to Heaven and back again. Montgomery has a happy-go-lucky charm as professional boxer Joe Pendleton. When the fighter's plane crashes after a bout, his spirit is removed - too early - from his body by the inexperienced heavenly messenger (Horton). A new body must be found. First, Joe occupies the body of a millionaire about to be murdered in his tub, and later a heavyweight boxer who runs afoul of the Mob.
  • Baker & Taylor
