From Mitchell Leisen, the legendary director of Easy Living, Midnight and Remember the Night. When the Grim Reaper (Fredric March, Nothing Sacred, Inherit the Wind) pays a visit to a family of wealthy socialites, it turns out that he’s not there on his usual business. Intent on entering the human world for a three-day holiday, Death takes the form of a visiting prince, and assumes all the pleasures and pains that go with flesh and blood existence. Experiencing, for the first time, all that humanity has to offer, he becomes enamored of Grazia (Evelyn Venable, Double Door), a woman both in love with life and infatuated with death. Co-starring Henry Travers (Clarence, the angel of It’s a Wonderful Life) and Gail Patrick (My Man Godfrey), this thrilling and evocative portrayal of death’s lesson and life’s blessing is one of the all-time classics of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
