one of my fave films is 'heaven can wait.' it is just perfect. it has warren and julie and a dynamite performance from dyan cannon. the film is touching to the nth degree and only slightly dates when it comes to hairstyle. julie is TINY and warren is FUNNY and love TRIUMPHS.
when producer warren was preparing the film he wanted the lead to be played by muhammed ali. yes! he wanted it to be about a boxer, not about a football player. alas, ali remained in the ring and beatty stepped up his participation and wound up producing, directing, writing and then starring as the dedicated athlete who gets his soul snatched away too soon. the entire cast is crazy great.
