Product Description:

A beguiling fantasy comedy that accompanies a restless spirit from Earth to Heaven and back again. Montgomery has a happy-go-lucky charm as professional boxer Joe Pendleton. When the fighter's plane crashes after a bout, his spirit is removed--too early-- from his body by the inexperienced heavenly messenger (Horton, in one of his best roles). A new body must be found. First, Joe occupies the body of a millionaire about to be murdered in his tub, and later a heavyweight boxer who runs afoul of the Mob. Throughout his celestial journeys, he finds his way to the winsome Keyes and his manager, Gleason. Followed by the 1947 sequel Down to Earth and the the inspiration for 1978's Heaven Can Wait. The laserdisc features a second audio track with commentary by Montgomery's daughter, Elizabeth Montgomery, who discusses the film, her father, and her own career. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Robert Montgomery.

James Gleason, Edward Everett Horton, and Roland Culver reprised their characters from "Jordan."

Beatty starred in, co-wrote, and co-directed the film, which also featured Julie Christie, Jack Warden, James Mason, Dyan Cannon, Charles Grodin, Buck Henry, and Vincent Gardenia. Henry shared directing duties with Beatty, while Elaine May shared writing.
    And, finally, 1980 saw the release of "Xanadu," a remake of "Down to Earth."
