Trade shown, reviewed and released as "Heaven Only Knows," for a short while until the exhibitors (in mostly small town situations) started complaining that customers were staying away in droves because they thought it was a religious film. UA pulled it back, in the same release year, and retitled it "Montana Mike" and sent it back out again, one of the few instances where an original title and an alternate title occurred in the same original release period or year, despite some sources that seem to think original and alternate and re-issue titles all came about in the same year.

Wish I could obtain a copy of this movie. Does anyone know how to get one?
Heaven Only Knows from 1947 was a great movie with a beautiful message. It left a wonderful impression on me as a child. The story itself gave forth the importance of good over evil. Robert Cummings along with Brian Donlevy put forth great acting in this film. The actor who portrayed the Devil also left an impression on me. The idea of putting this rather religious message in the area of a western town, is unique. I keep looking to see if it is listed in the TV movie guides but never see it. I often wonder why some of those older, great, movies are never shown on TV considering the TV networks keep playing other older movies over and over again. Does anyone know how I can obtain a copy of this film? I have tried everywhere.
