Director Ernst Lubitsch’s first color film features a recently deceased playboy recounting his lifetime of amorous adventures to a bemused Satan.  Starring Don Ameche and Gene Tierney, Heaven Can Wait (1943) is a wonderfully light comedy-fantasy-romance that received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Directing and Cinematography.  The west-coast premiere screening of the film, which has recently been restored by the Academy Film Archive and 20th Century Fox in collaboration with The Film Foundation, will be preceded by photos and clips commemorating the 25th anniversary of The Film Foundation.
