aka STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Great Britain | 1946 | Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger
This imaginative, one-of-a-kind color fantasy/love story is one of Powell and Pressburger’s greatest films. Set during WWII, it tells of an RAF pilot (David Niven) who bales out of his flaming plane without a parachute and suddenly finds himself pleading for his life before a heavenly tribunal. Arguing that his time has not yet come, he finds an ardent ally in a female American radio operator (Kim Hunter). Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 104 min.
