Here Comes Mr. Jordan (aka Heaven Can Wait and Mr. Jordan Comes to Town) (1941) is a romantic comedy-fantasy film in which a boxer, mistakenly taken to Heaven before his time, is given a second chance back on Earth. It stars Robert Montgomery, Claude Rains and Evelyn Keyes. Here Comes Mr. Jordan was adapted by Sidney Buchman and Seton I. Miller from the play Heaven Can Wait by Harry Segall and was directed by Alexander Hall. Here Comes Mr. Jordan was followed by Down to Earth (1947), in which two of the actors reprised their roles. The premise of guardian angels was later the focus of other Hollywood features, including I Married an Angel (1942); Angel on My Shoulder (1946), in which Rains plays the Devil; and Angels in the Outfield (1951), but it all began with Here Comes Mr. Jordan.
