TELEVISION, ANGELS ON

Since television’s inception, it is likely that every drama and situation comedy has had at least one episode that involved the appearance of an angel. While the actual storylines may vary, the general plot usually revolves around one of two ideas: how the lives of the characters in the program would have altered if a pivotal character had never existed (a la It’s a Wonderful Life), or the granting of a wish to a person who is most deserving. The It’s a Wonderful Life storyline is arguably the most used of its kind, appearing in one form or another at least once every holiday season.

Historically, angels on television appear as normal human beings, they are rarely portrayed with the traditional flowing white gowns and wings on their backs. The fact that other humans do not recognize them as angels is usually pivotal to the plot as the angel is often on Earth to help out a person in need.

During the golden age of television, much of the programming that went on the air was, to say the least, experimental. Television executives searched other mediums, such as film, theater, and radio, to find successful material that would easily cross over to video. Probably the first major appearance of angels on television during this period occurred in 1957 when Hallmark Hall of Fame presented the television adaptation of Mark Connelly’s spiritual play, The Green Pastures. This production was experimental in two ways: first because angels appear as main characters, and second because it featured an all black cast. This highly acclaimed fable of life in heaven starred William Warfield as De Lawd, with Vinette Carroll and Hilda Haynes as angels, and retold biblical stories in black English vernacular.

One of the most popular television shows during the early 1960s was Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone, a series of weekly teleplays with offbeat, unusual, and often ironic themes. Due to the remarkable “fantasy” life associated with angels, Serling and other science-fiction writers made good use of this theme for a number of plots.

In the first season Serling produced an episode called “A Passage for Trumpet.” The story surrounds a man named Joey Crown played by Jack Klugman. Certain that he’ll never amount to anything, Joey decides to commit suicide only to be saved by the angel “Gabriel” who proceeds to show Joey what the world would be like without him, again following the It’s a Wonderful Life story line.

The angel theme would show up twice more during The Twilight Zone’s original five-season run. In 1962, Serling produced an episode entitled “Mr. Bevis.” After losing his job, wrecking his car, and being evicted from his apartment, all in the same day, Bevis, played by Orson Bean, makes the acquaintance of guardian angel J. Hardy Hempstead who helps him put his life back together. Originally, Serling intended “Mr. Bevis” as a pilot for a series starring Burgess Meredith, wherein each week, the angel would get Bevis out of yet another scrape. However the pilot did not sell.

Although most of The Twilight Zone story lines were sober and surrealistic, in 1962 Serling produced a light-hearted, humorous episode entitled “Cavender is Coming.” The plot told the story of an angel assigned to make a clumsy woman’s life better. Comedienne Carol Burnett starred as the main character, and veteran comic actor Jesse White (best known as the original Maytag repairman) portrayed the angel.

While angels have appeared on television programs since the golden age, programs featuring an angel as the main character have been rare. In 1976, Good Heavens, a light-hearted situation comedy, appeared on ABC television. The original pilot of the short-lived series, entitled “Everything Money Can’t Buy,” cast Jose Ferrer as the only regularly featured character-an angel in a three-piece pinstripe suit and white fedora. However, the series was recast, and Carl Reiner served as the angel during the show’s one-season run. Each episode dealt with Reiner bestowing a wish (always non-monetary) upon a different human (played by various guest stars).

In an unsuccessful television pilot from 1982, The Kid With the Broken Halo, Gary Coleman portrayed a young angel who tries to earn his wings by helping three desperate families with the assistance of senior angel, Robert Guillaume.

By far the most popular attempt at a television series featuring an angel as the main character was Highway to Heaven, which ran on NBC from 1984 to 1988. The dramatic series starred Michael Landon (who also served as the show’s producer) as Jonathan Smith, an angel on probation whose mission on Earth is to bring love and understanding to humans who are in some sort of trouble. Assuming the guise of a traveling laborer, Jonathan is often aided by his human companion Mark Gordon (played by Victor French), an ex-police officer who had been saved by Jonathan. The emotion packed storylines made the show a success. However, there was room for humor, such as the episode entitled “I Was a Middle-Aged Werewolf,” in which Landon parodies a character he portrayed in the 1957 horror movie, I Was a Teenage Werewolf.

Along this same theme, CBS aired the television drama series Touched by an Angel, which ran from 1994 to 2003. This distaff version of Highway to Heaven, starred Roma Downey as an acerbic, independent angel whose mission is to protect children who are fated for greatness but are not meeting their promise. She takes her orders from Della Reese, a messenger on high.

Another unsuccessful series with an angel theme produced in 1995 was Heaven Help Us. The plot line followed a young couple named Doug and Lexy Monroe played respectively by John Schneider and Melinda Clark. The Monroes were killed in a plane crash while on their honeymoon. They awoke on the thirteenth floor of a hotel (because of superstition, hotels do not usually have a thirteenth floor), where they met their guiding angel, Mr. Shepherd played by Ricardo Montalban. Mr. Shepherd informs the Monroe’s that, though they had never done anything particularly bad in their lives, they had never done anything particularly good either and as a result must now perform a series of good deeds. The plot of the first show focused on the Monroe’s attempts to reunite Lexy’s parents.

Television has also aired a number of madefor-television movies with angels involved in the storyline. The Littlest Angel, produced in 1969, starred Johnny Whitaker in a musical about a shepherd boy who dies falling off of a cliff and then struggles to become an angel. He learns a lesson in giving and eventually earns his wings with the help of fellow angels played by Fred Gwynne, E. G. Marshall, Cab Calloway, and Tony Randall.

In 1977, a remake of It’s a Wonderful Life called It Happened One Christmas first appeared on television. In this version, the main character played by Jimmy Stewart in the movie was portrayed by Marlo Thomas with Cloris Leachman as the angel.

One of the most memorable made-for-television movies was Human Feelings (1978). This movie starred Billy Crystal as Miles Gordon and a frustrated angel/clerk to God, portrayed by Nancy Walker (known to all of the angels as Mrs. G). In a takeoff of the biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah, God threatens to destroy Las Vegas in seven days unless six righteous people can be found among its population. Miles takes on the task, disguised as a mortal. The movie also starred Pamela Sue Martin, Jack Carter, Pat Morita, and Jack Fiedler (who made an angelic appearance in The Twilight Zone episode, “Cavender is Corning.” The NBC movie has been rerun a number of times.

The burgeoning interest in angels in the 1990s created a resurgence of television shows exploring this topic. The subject of angels on television was not, however, limited to television dramas and situation comedies or made-for-television movies. Indeed, many times angels have served as the topic for daytime talk shows, prime time news magazine shows and public service shows. Among such programs were Angels: Mysterious Messengers, an NBC special hosted by Patty Duke, which aired in 1994, and In Search of Angels, a PBS special hosted by Debra Winger also from 1994.
