Marion (Constance Bennett) and George (Cary Grant) Kerby live life in the fast lane, until they wake from a car accident as ghosts and realize they’re one good deed short of going to heaven. The Kerbys decide to earn their ticket to paradise by helping their stuffy friend Cosmo Topper (Roland Young) shake up his life. Produced by Hal Roach, of Laurel and Hardy fame, Topper proved to be a laugh-out-loud box office smash with special effects that still hold up today.
