This is a great film about a stuffy family who is ruled by an even stuffier patriarch (Jasper). His daughter gets involved with a flashy showman (Oakie) and he "dies" while his wife is having their first child. He is taken up to heaven and repeatedly requests to come back to Earth and finally gets his wish! After he returns to Earth, he tries to help his daughter to find her own life. This is not only a beautifully done fantasy, but is also a very funny comedy with good musical score. (Heaven just happened to give him squeaky shoes to wear :)
