"Angel on My Shoulder"

This movie is temporarily unavailnble.

In this 1946 classic film, gangster Eddie Lee (Paul Muni) is killed by a trusted lieutenant and finds himself in Harry Redmond Jr's special-effects Hell, where Nick/The Devil (Claude Rains) sees that he is an-exact double for a judge who Nick doesn't approve.

Eddie is agreeable to having his soul transferred to the judge's body, as it will give him a chance to avenge himself on his killer.

But every action taken by Eddie (as the judge) results in good rather than evil.

To Nick's dismay, the reputation and influence of the judge is enhanced, rather than impaired by Eddie.

And Eddie also falls in love with the judge's fiancee Barbara (Anne Baxter.) Even Eddie's planned revenge fails and Nick is forced to concede defeat.

He returns to Hell, taking Eddie with him, after Eddie has extracted his promise that Nick will not molest the judge or Barbara in the future.
