MOVIES, ANGELS IN THE

Angels, perhaps due to their fantastical and ethereal nature, have been the subject of numerous popular movies. Filmmakers revel in the opportunity to portray heaven and, in particular, what the residents of heaven look like and what they do. It is through this cinematic interpretation that the common view of heaven has become so entrenched in popular belief. Cinema heaven is approached through the golden gates guarded by St. Peter, and is usually misty and filled with clouds. Angels are typically white-robed, strum harps, are winged, and wear halos.

However, when angels leave their celestial abode, often they are stripped of their heavenly encumbrances and take on Hollywood’s favorite role of guardian (which holds with the job traditionally assigned by theologians to this lowest ranking choir). These cinema guardians usually assume human form, one that is easily recognizable and identifiable to their human charges.

There have been numerous examples of guardian angels in motion pictures over the decades. As has been Hollywood’s wont, many of these have had various incarnations as originals and remakes. For instance, Always is a remake of a Victor Fleming’s 1943 film, A Guy Named Joe. In the new version, Pete (Richard Dreyfuss) is a firefighter at Yellowstone National Park who has two significant people in his life-his best friend, Al (John Goodman), and girlfriend, Dormda (Holly Hunter). When Pete dies and crosses over to the afterlife after his heroic effort to save Al, he becomes a guardian angel for another pilot, Ted (Brad Johnson). His assignment is to pass on his considerable piloting skills to the young pilot Ted, who falls in love with Dorinda. When Ted volunteers for a dangerous mission to save a crew of firefighters, Dorinda, afraid of loosing Ted, steals his plane and completes the mission with the help of Pete’s inspiration. Afterwards, Pete lets go of her to allow Ted to take his place.

One of the classic examples of Hollywood angels can be found in The Bishop’s Wife (1947), in which Cary Grant is cast as the angel Dudley, sent to the aid of an absentminded young Episcopalian bishop played by David Niven. The assured Grant brings a relaxed quality to Dudley, and produces a calming effect among his troubled earthly charges. The audience is drawn to Grant in much the same way as the bishop and his wife, family, and friends are. He soothes us with his calming tones and mesmerizes with his beatific features. It is impossible not to believe that Dudley is, indeed, heaven sent. In the 1996 update, titled The Preacher’s Wife, Denzel Washington plays Dudley. He is sent to earth to help Henry Biggs (Courtney B. Vance), a struggling pastor in a Baptist church in a poor section of New York City. Biggs, who devotes himself to his family and community, is struggling to keep things going. Several problems shake his faith, however: Joe Hamilton (Gregory Hines) wants to buy his property and build condominiums, and Biggs’s marriage to Julia (Whitney Houston) is undergoing a lot of strain. With his problems multiplying, Biggs prays to God for direction. But in a twist, Dudley, sent to restore Bigg’s faith, finds himself unexpectedly falling in love with the preacher’s wife.

An angel not quite of the same gracious ilk appears in another classic, It’s a Wonderful Life (1946), one of the most-watched films of all time. Frank Capra poignantly tells the story of George Bailey, a man of high moral fiber who rediscovers his own worth. In this movie, Henry Travers is cast as the bulbous-nosed, very droll angel second class Clarence, who gives the disturbed hero (James Stewart) the gift of reliving events as they might have been had he never been born. Clarence may not possess the debonair qualities of Grant’s Dudley, but he has the faith of a child, and is probably the most recognized and best loved of all cinematic angels.

The opposite end of the spectrum of Hollywood angels can be found in the 1996 film Michael. John Travolta plays the archangel Michael, who is sent to earth to share his heavenly philosophy about life and what lies beyond. Michael is portrayed as a smoking, beerdrinking, coarse individual with an extremely active libido. He enjoys laughing and dancing, and appreciates the wonders and the gift of earthly life. Reporters Frank Quinlan (William Hurt) and Huey Driscoll (Robert Pastorelli), who work for newspaper in Chicago, travel to Iowa to meet Michael, along with angel expert Dorothy Winters (Andie MacDowell). Once they arrive they convince the angel to come back with them. The road trip becomes a journey of laughter, sadness, and romantic tension between Dorothy and Frank the reporter. After they arrive in Chicago, Dorothy and the reporter get together, and Michael exits the earth.

In a myriad of other Hollywood films, angels come to the aid of their charges for a variety of reasons. In Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), one of the most delightful feature films of the 1940s, the inhabitants of heaven are forced to admit their fallibility and set about to remedy their mistake. Joe Pendleton, played by Robert Montgomery, is a boxer called to meet his maker before his time. Thus, heavenly messenger Mr. Jordan must accompany him back to earth, where they search among those about to die for a suitable replacement body. The movie was remade in 1978 as one of the most popular angel films of the decade, Heaven Can Wait. This time Joe Pendleton is an aging quarterback (Warren Beatty) for the Rams. The cornerstone of the plot remains the same as in the first film: Joe is accidentally snatched by heaven before his time. Joe insists that he is not ready to die and is eventually deposited into the recently murdered, unathletic body of millionaire Leo Farnsworth, who is working with the farcical coach Max Corkle to get in shape for an upcoming Super Bowl game. All the while the bewilderment of Farnsworth’s wife and her scheming lover, who thought they’d killed Farnsworth the first time, add to the fun.

In 1950 For Heaven’s Sake cast Clifton Webb as tart heavenly messenger Charles and the more benign Edmund Gwenn as his angelic sidekick, Arthur. They are sent to earth to help the prospective parents of a child angel called Item, who has been waiting seven years to be born. For most of the film, Webb assumes the role of a wealthy Texas rancher. He is confronted by earthly temptations-women, drinking, gambling-and succumbs to several of them. In typical Hollywood style, though, he is forgiven by his superiors when all ends well and Item is finally born.

Angels in the Outfield (1951) is unique in that it is a combination of sports flick with a religious message. Angels, in this case, come to the aid of an entire baseball team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, as they rise from the bottom of the National League to win the pennant. This miracle comes about as a result of an unseen heavenly voice who visits Guffy, the Pirate’s acerbic manager (Paul Douglas). If Guffy reforms his unsavory ways, promises the angel, Heavenly Choir Nine will assist his losing team to victory. “You play ball with me and I’ll play ball with you,” the angel bargains. The film was remade by Disney in 1994.

In 1970 director Jan Kadar put to film a short story by Bernard Malamud called The Angel Levine. This allegorical movie again makes use of the guardian angel theme, but with a twist. Zero Mostel, as Morris Mishkin, is a world-weary, cynical Orthodox Jew, who is convinced that the world is against him. In answer to his constant complaints, God sends a divine intermediary in the guise of a dapper black man (Harry Belafonte). The angel introduces himself as Alexander Levine, a Jewish angel on heavenly probation, and explains that his task is to convince Morris that he is legitimate.

In the 1956 Forever Darling, a similarly handsome guardian angel appears to Susan Bewell, played by Lucille Ball, a screwball socialite convinced that she is losing her mind. Susan asks her playboy father, “Guardian angels don’t have wings do they?” Her father answers, “Guardian angels aren’t like angels from Heaven. They can look like ordinary men.” The urbane James Mason is cast as Susan’s guide, who assures her that he is, in fact, her guardian angel. “If you are what you say you are,” questions Susan, “why do you look like James Mason?” To which Mason replies, “I look the way you want me to look.” (Mason would again take on the role of heavenly messenger in Heaven Can Wait.)

Another film to make use of angelic themes is The Kid with the Broken Halo (1982), in which a young black angel (Gary Coleman) and his reluctant elder descend to earth and save three diversely ethnic souls. In The Heavenly Kid (1985), macho Bobby Fontana is the ultimate loser in a drag race, and as his car tumbles over a cliff and explodes, he finds himself on a subway going nowhere. He is approached by a very earthy angel named Rafferty, played by Richard Mulligan. “I was expecting something different,” says Bobby, “Angels and harps and that kind of stuff.” “Oh no,” Rafferty explains, “That’s in uptown. This is midtown. Sort of a way station… temporary.” Rafferty further explains that, until Bobby takes on and successfully completes an assignment on earth, he will ride the subway forever. Bobby is saved from this Hollywood purgatory by coming to the aid of Lenny, a young boy so dissatisfied with his life that he attempts suicide.

Date with an Angel (1987) is a rather lackluster film about an angel who is sent to earth to interrupt the unpromising life of a young musician (Michael E. Knight). There are some rather interesting points to note, however. The angelic being sent to the musician is female, and when she descends to earth she cannot speak, implying that angels do not communicate in the same way as humans. Further, the angel falls in love with her heavenly charge, and unlike Dudley in The Bishop’s Wife, chooses, and is allowed to remain, on earth. When she metaphorically hangs up her wings, she literally is able to communicate because she has become an earthly being.

Since the 1980s, a number of darker films have been made involving angels and apocalyptic visions. William Hjortsberg’s 1978 novel, Falling Angel, inspired the 1987 film Angel Heart. Violence and religion intertwine with diabolical scenes of voodoo ceremonies, grizzly murders, and hallucinations of bloody horror for the protagonist-and for the imaginations of the audience members who are able to sit through this film. Robert De Niro stars in the part of Lou Cyphre, who hires detective Harry Angel (Mickey Rourke) to find a famous singer named Johnny Favorite, who has mysteriously disappeared before making good on a bargain he made with Cyphre. The narrative unfolds in the gloomier districts of 1950s Harlem and Louisiana marshes in the quest for Favorite. The detective finally discovers that he is, in fact, Johnny Favorite, who had previously failed to honor his contract when he sold his soul to the Devil.

The next year, 1988, saw the release of The Seventh Sign, directed by Carl Schultz. This apocalyptic story revolves around an expectant mother (Demi Moore), whose unborn child is the key to the fate of the world. It seems that heaven is full and the soul of her child, if it dies, will unlock the seventh, and final seal that heralds the endtime. Jurgen Prochnow is cast as the mysterious angelic presence sent to earth to keep the biblical prophesy at bay.

Dark Angel: The Ascent (not to be confused with multiple version of the movie Dark Angels) is a very unusual 1994 movie about an evil angel who is tired of inflicting punishment on the inhabitants of the underworld. Directed by Linda Hassani, the film’s atmospheric visual effects for the underworld were created in a Romanian castle with torches instead of electrical lighting. The fallen angel Veronica (Angela Featherstone) escapes from hell through a secret passage just before her bloodthirsty father slashes her with his sword. Featherstone arrives on the earth through a manhole with her dog. She slays murderers and rapists, sending their souls to hell. In avenging the good, however, she is doing evil and must return to the underworld to be cleansed in the river Styx. The love of a good man helps her learn compassion.

In the 1997 film Ceremony, a rebellious angel is banished from heaven for falling in love with Satan and imprisoned in a box called The Clockwork. Centuries later, it opens in the home of a college student. Her buddies get together to put the fallen angel back in his box. As one might anticipate, the angel inflicts mayhem on the students, though most come back to life at the end of the film.

Constantine is a 2005 film loosely based on the Hellblazer comic book series. The background to the story is that heaven and hell have a wager about which side can win the most souls. As part of the conditions in this bet, neither angels nor demons can manifest directly on the earthly plane. The central character, John Constantine (Keane Reeves), teams up with female detective Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz), who is trying to find out if her twin sister committed suicide. As the story unfolds, Constantine discovers that the son of Satan, Mammon, has betrayed his father and is attempting to take over earth. Constantine, who has made killing demons a life mission-thereby earning Satan’s enduring wrath-mounts an attack to thwart Mammon’s plot. The archangel Gabriel (Tilda Swinton), who has been upset that humans can redeem themselves so easily (by mere repentance), intervenes, incapacitating Constantine and aiding Mammon. Constantine, however, commits suicide and is able to summon Lucifer-who comes to personally take Constantine to hell-and tell him about the plot. Lucifer then sends his son back to hell and attacks Gabriel, who subsequently must live life as an ordinary human being. In order to prevent Constantine from going to heaven-he had redeemed himself by requesting that Angela’s sister be released from hell-Lucifer brings him back to life, hoping that he will one day slip up and so eventually end up back in hell.

Not all recent movies involving angels have been so dark, of course. There have been a number of much more light-hearted tales. Almost an Angel (1990) is a light-hearted film staring Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski of Crocodile Dundee fame. Hogan plays Terry Dean, a small-time criminal who believes he has died and been given a second chance by being sent back to earth as an angel to make amends for his wayward life. Terry runs into Steve (Elias Koteas), who takes him home and introduces him to his sister Rose (Kozlowski). Terry begins helping out at Rose’s center for neighborhood kids, eventually tricking a potential donor into contributing heavily to the center.

The 1997 film A Life Less Ordinary starts out with a Hollywood version of heaven, where everything is divine and bright. The problem is that the angels have not been doing a very good job at connecting men and women together for lifelong commitments. The archangel Gabriel sends two angels, O’Reilly (Holly Hunter) and Jackson (Delroy Lindo), to connect a mismatched couple. Robert, a Scottish janitor (Ewan McGregor), loses his job and kidnaps the boss’s daughter without a plan. Celine (Cameron Diaz) assists Robert in obtaining ransom money from her father. The angels, knowing they will be punished with permanent exile should they fail, show up as bounty hunters and are eventually instrumental in prompting the mismatched couple to fall in love.

Dogma (1999) is a star-studded, satirical comedy featuring the earth-bound lives of two fallen angels: Bartleby (Ben Affleck) and Loki (Matt Damon). Loki was the former Angel of Death before he and Bartleby were banished from heaven for getting drunk and giving God the finger. They were then condemned to spend the rest of eternity in exile in Wisconsin. With the help of a New Jersey church campaign organized by Cardinal Glick (George Carlin) to attract more followers, they realized they could get back into heaven by obtaining an indulgence from him. Unfortunately, defying the rule of God would cause an end to all of existence, so God has helpers to prevent the duo from getting to the church. The film follows the escapades of these two homicidal angels on their travels to New Jersey.

Movies with angel themes have also entered the genre of children’s animated features. A prime example is 1989’s All Dogs Go To Heaven. In this story, Charlie, a streetwise, wily German shepherd, gets killed by a wicked bulldog. After spending a short time in heaven, Charlie becomes bored and yearns for the excitement of earth. He also wants to get even. Ignoring the warning that if he sneaks out of heaven he might not be allowed back, Charlie slithers past the gate keeper. Later, Charlie is fighting for his life as evil dogs attack him and a little orphan girl. Dying again, the Devil Dog tries to claim Charlie as a permanent resident in canine hell. Heaven’s emissaries, however, reclaim him because he had heroically given up his life to save the orphan girl. The film generated one theatrical sequel, All Dogs Go to Heaven 2; a television series; and a Christmas special, An All Dogs Christmas Carol.

On the European scene, the best interpretation of the fall of angels on earth is without doubt Wim Wenders’s black-and-white masterpiece Wings of Desire (1987), which proposes that redemption occurs with a descent into physicality. Ganz, one of a pair of angels visiting Berlin, decides he wants to be human after falling in love with a circus performer. Wenders’s angels, who have perceptual access to everyone’s subconscious, are perfect humanists whose center of operations is the Berlin public library and whose chief function is to calm savaged emotions and save despairing lives. City of Angels is a remake of this film. Here, Seth (Nicolas Cage) is an angel who roams Los Angeles. Invisible to human beings, he listens to people’s thoughts, celebrating their lives and deaths. Whenever someone’s death approaches, he assists them through the transformation to the other side. While in a hospital to guide a dying man to the afterlife, Seth’s attention is captured by the determined doctor Maggie Rice (Meg Ryan) who tries to save her patient’s life. He returns with the intention of relieving Maggie’s distress. Spending hours watching her, he realizes he has fallen in love with her. He meets a former angel turned human (Dennis Franz), who reveals that Seth has the ability to cross over as a mortal to be with Maggie. Once becoming human, he warns, there is no going back. Seth goes through the transformation and makes the journey to see Maggie. The couple makes love, introducing Seth to the experiences of human touch and pleasure. Maggie then dies in a sudden accident the next day, leaving Seth to live a lonely life alone, but with no regrets. Wenders continued his saga in the 1993 sequel to his original film, Far Away, So Close.
