|A notorious gangster is murdered by his double-crossing partner. While in hell, he makes a deal with the devil to return to earth..Only to double-cross him in the end.|
Editor's NoteHarry Segal, the writer of HERE COMES MR. JORDAN, sends a soul in the other direction in ANGEL ON MY SHOULDER. Gangster Eddie Kagel (Paul Muni) is killed by a buddy and lands in hell. After an unsuccessful attempt to break out of hell, Nick, the Devil, (Claude Rains) strikes a deal with Eddie. Nick will allow Eddie back to Earth if Eddie will destroy the reputation of upstanding judge Frederick Parker. Eddie agrees to the deal and Nick zaps his soul into Frederick's body. Eddie/Frederick's aim is to off his turncoat buddy as soon as possible, but Nick isn't interested in any funny business. As Eddie and Nick attempt to ruin Frederick, Parker's fiancée (Anne Baxter) is rearing up to wed Eddie/Frederick, and her affections cause Eddy to reflect upon his devilish mission. ANGEL ON MY SHOULDER, director Archie Mayo's final film, which was released in 1946, has retained its popularity over the years.
