Movie: Heaven Can Wait - 1978
Director: Warren Beatty & Buck Henry
Synopsis: Los Angeles Rams backup Quarterback Joe Pendleton (Warren Beatty), looking foward to the Super Bowl, is almost killed in a collision with a truck. A novice, over-anxious guardian angel (Buck Henry) plucks him out of his body, assuming his death is imminent, and wisks him to heaven. Once there, he discovers from the mysterious Mr. Jordan (James Mason) that a mistake has been made - his divinely ordained time of death hasn't yet come. To complicate matters, his body has been cremated. A replacement must be located. Mr. Jordan proposes about-to-be-murdered millionaire Leo Farnsworth.
Scene: After observing the build-up to Farnsworth's imminent murder, and the arrival of attractive environmental protester Betty Logan (Julie Christie) for an unscheduled meeting, Joe races up to the master bathroom in time to rise from the tub as the "new" Leo Farnsworth.
Monogram: Joe Pendleton, wearing Leo Farnsworth's monogrammed robe, with the initial F embroidered in gold on a navy blue robe.
