A Matter of Life and Death, 1946, starring Raymond Massey, Roger Livesey, David Niven and Kim Hunter.

When the movie was released in North America, the title was changed to Stairway to Heaven because it was believed people would be depressed by a title with the word death in it so soon after war’s end. I guess the Brits are made of steadier stuff
The icing on the cake and really the most important reason to watch is a short ride by Doctor Reeves on a Square Four!
