Heaven Can Wait (1943) Henry’s Dream


“He said, Henry I’ve come to take you a TRIP from what you’ll never come back”

An aged Henry van Cleve enters the opulent reception area of Hell, to be personally greeted by “His Excellency”. Henry petitions to be admitted (fully aware of the kind of life he had led), but there is some doubt as to his qualifications. To prove his worthiness (or rather unworthiness), he begins to tell the story of his dissolute life.

– His Excellency Aka “The DEVIL” –

His Excellency: If you meet our requirements, we’ll be only too glad to accommodate you. Uh, would you be good enough to mention, for instance, some outstanding crime you’ve committed?
Henry Van Cleve: Crime? Crime? I’m afraid I can’t think of any, but I can safely say my whole life was one continuous misdemeanor.
