In this old movie from around 1938, Carey Grant and Constance Bennett are George and Marian Kirby. They are filthy rich and about as flamboyant as possible. They live everyday like it is their last, drinks, laughter, and song. Their friend and banker is Cosmo Topper (Roland Young). They also have a dog which is a St.Bernard maned Neil. Neil is an alcoholic. When the Kirbys are suddenly killed in an auto accident, they find themselves before the Pearly Gates being refused admission because of the crazy, drunken, lives that they have lived, but are given one last chance to do something really good to redeem themselves. This is a funny , "zany" old movie. The dialogue comes quickly, as is often the case in 1930's style one liners. They set out to liberate Topper and put some fun and excitement into his life, but when things get crazy, they wind up saving his life and redeeming themselves. Funny Movie!
I loved the Topper series when I was a child. I think this is a timeless story. Loaded with great actors including Gary Grant. The story is a great and timeless comedy.
Watched movie while growing up. Love Gary Grant. Liked the black and white version better, they shouldn't have colorized it. Movie is funny, great characters.
