As the other reviewers stated the story and acting are top-notch. Even on the short. I have one other VCI disc and there is a Leon Errol short on it. I had never heard of him. He is actually pretty funny.
Both "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" and "Angel on My Shoulder" not only spoke to the era in which they were made, but also became classics in their own right. Despite the fact that "Angel" was produced during the tail end of World War II, it continues to be enjoyed by television and video rental audiences year after year. Its heartwarming comedy and central theme of redemption have stood the test of time.
Paul Muni plays the lead with much charm, while Claude Rains is a debonaire Devil. There's a few loose ends in the story's structure and non-organic characters whose only purpose is to serve a utility function. However, in the end the overall film delivers an entertaining viewing... and afterall, isn't that the bottom line?
Current rumor has it that a re-make is in the works with a major actor to play the lead. I personally can't wait to see the update.
Thanks to all of you who write helpful reviews of the quality of transfer of the classics on DVD. You are much appreciated!
