Heaven Can Wait (1978): Warren Beatty showed off his charm and smarts in this screwball-comedy throwback, a remake of 194''s "Here Comes Mr. Jordan." It was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including best picture, winning one for its art direction. Beatty, as co-director with Buck Henry and co-writer with Elaine May, is of course the star as a Los Angeles Rams quarterback who's killed in an accident but finds himself sent back to Earth in the body of an eccentric billionaire. But Dyan Cannon and Charles Grodin do great, showy supporting work, and Julie Christie couldn't be lovelier. Satire, sweetness and strong visuals blend seamlessly here.
