The Andrews Sisters
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.

The 1950's television meant small screens, black and white snowy pictures and a lot of bad programing. It also meant seeing great old movies such as Heaven Only Knows. That movie with an angel and devil's minion both trying to win the same soul at the "Pair-o-Dice" Saloon in the old west was so captivating to the then six to nine year old I must have been, that 45 years later the memory drove me to the library to find it again. There it was, in Robert Cummings' filmography. It's fine to know the source of the memory, but it would be even better to SEE it again. My research a few years ago showed only one known copy, located, if memory still serves, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Maybe there are enough of us out here who would love to see it so that it might be worth while for somebody to do whatever needs doing to make it available. So, if you're one of those who want it, write in too.
