Angel on my Shoulder
A gangster and Satan team up to ruin an honest judge's reputation. Muni is a murdered gangster who makes a deal with Rains' "Nick" to sabotage an honest judge's reputation by Muni inhabiting the man, falling for the judge's fiance. The story is predictable, which makes for a rather dull viewing with too many conveniently-timed plot elements. The performances are solid enough to keep interest in a lifeless story. I give it a 2.5/5.
Charming with an important message
First, did anyone else see the similarity in the last scene with Rains and Muni vs the last scene in Casablanca with Rains and Bogart? "This could be the start of a great friendship" kind of thing.I think they underplayed the role of the Pastor as he prepared his sermon. This was a very important part of the story and it was a bit too subtle. Muni helped to bring it out so the message was given.I liked the special effects, the dialogue and the sets. I was less enthusiastic about the rambling storyline. Rains soliloquy was terrific. Much better film than I was expecting.

Excellent because Paul Muni made it excellent! I loved this movie I am so happy that it is a part of my classic movie library. I have over 300 classic movies that I have taped over a span of 20 years, and have now transferred to DVD, thats why you see my name on TCM a lot, I am probably your biggest fan.I just don't like it when you show movies that were made after 1962. I only love the movies from 1934 - 1962. Classics forever.
