Comments about Chance at Heaven:

Ginger Rogers was great as Marje. Unfortunately, that's not enough to save this movie. I expect better acting from Joel McCrea but either he thought his character Blacky was a moron (which he was) or he didn't care about this role. The rich woman, Glory, was a bigger idiot than the hapless moron she fell in love with and the actress playing her was annoying and tedious. Glory complains that her mother controls her life but allows the woman to lure her back to New York midway through the film. Even Marje wasn't the brightest bulb on the string of Christmas lights. She wisely dumps the clueless Blacky when he falls for Glory but in a stunning act of stupidity, tries befriend both of them. It was a tolerable movie and Marje was interesting because her responses were so different from most people but then came the end of the movie. It was as if they ran out of plot and just ended the movie abruptly. If the last few minutes of the movie To Die For raised an enjoyable movie to sublime, this movie is the inverse. A better ending could have raised this movie's quality up considerably. The image and sound quality on this release were good.
