Plot – Lance Barton is an aspiring black comedian who is about to make his dream come true: to become famous by taking part to the finals of an amateur actors’ competition at the ‘Apollo Theatre’. However, he gets ran over by a bus while he is on his way. He arrives in Paradise, where he finds out that his death was a mistake: he is going to live for other 50 years! A couple of angels, Mr. Keyes and Mr. King, tries to fix the mess and decides to send him back on Earth. Here, another problem comes out: they have to find a body for the poor Lance because he cannot use his former one. They choose to take the rich Charles Wellington’s one. With his new aspect and patrimony, Lance falls in love with the beautiful Sontee, while he has to deal with the terrible assistant and his wife that are planning to kill him.
