Description by OLDIES.com:

The devilish comedy/fantasy Angel On My Shoulder teams two Academy Award" winners Paul Muni (1936 Best Actor, The Story of Louis Pasteur) and Anne Baxter (1946 Best Supporting Actress, The Razor's Edge), with the remarkable character actor, Claude Rains.

Muni portrays Eddie Kagle, a recently murdered gangster whose attempts at "busting out" of hell and returning to the world of the living bring him to the attention of Nick (Claude Rains) - the Devil himself. Eddie makes a deal with Nick: the devil will send him back to earth to take over the body of a respected judge who is trying to stamp out evil. If, as the judge, Eddie can become more dishonest and help keep more of those doing the devil's work roaming the earth, Nick will set him free for good. But Eddie soon discovers that he can't return to his corrupt ways, and when he falls in love with the judge's fianc?e (Anne Baxter), he tries to break his deal with the devil.

Angel On My Shoulder was written by Harry Segall, who was the co-writer of another return-from-the-dead fantasy, Here Comes Mr. Jordan, a film in which Claude Rains appeared as an angel, not the devil.
