Description
Director: Ernst Lubitsch
Henry Van Cleve (Don Ameche), a wealthy member of New York’s elite, presents himself in front of the Satan (Laird Cregar). However, he doubts whether Van Cleve has sinned enough to be qualified to enter. To establish his case, Van Cleve proceeds to tell his life story, in all its dirty detail, focussed on his long relationship with his wife Martha, played by Gene Tierney. Ernst Lubitsch’s only completed technicolor film is a delightful and sophisticated comedy about the upper-class.
