SYNOPSIS

Topper will screen from an imported 35mm print.

‘Cary Grant and Constance Bennett play a wealthy, fun-loving couple who awaken from a sports car accident only to discover that they’re dead. They have to perform at least one good deed to make it into Heaven, and to do that they try to teach their stick-in-the-mud friend Cosmo Topper (Roland Young, Oscar-nominated) how to enjoy life. This sparkling box office hit (which spun off a pair of sequels and a TV series) helped establish Grant as a screwball comedy star of the first order.’ American Cinematheque
