juggles the tones and genre shifts with an impressive deftness that makes it feel all of a piece even though, in many ways, it is all over the place

There are some nice comic moments peppered throughout, but more interesting than the film itself is its influence on film and TV.

The delightful Here Comes Mr. Jordan was based on a play (Harry Segall's Heaven Can Wait), but it's hardly a stagebound film, given its ease at hopping between numerous locales both earthy and celestial.

A mildly amusing comedy fantasy that was extremely popular during WWII and later served as the basis for Warren Beatty's 1978 Heaven Can Wait.

Mr. Jordan has the right kind of love for itself: it isn't self-glorifying or self-fetishizing so much as it is contagiously warm toward its characters and besotted with its tenderly ambitious script

The film is surprisingly sharp-edged and caustic for 1941 fare.

The appealing theme of predestination is expressed by [Rain's] Mr. Jordan ... making this one of the few rom-coms expressly for Presbyterians.
