Classic Film/man in cloud watches daughter?
Hello, I saw an old movie on tv in australia approximately 1991, I beleive it was american. A man ( sailor or soldier) has died, he is being shown his life by an angel or god, they are hanging out on a cloud, looking down on scenes on earth, particularly his daughter, the mans main lesson seems to be of his daughter and doing right by her, I remember it being a sea side town and there was also a scene with the daughter at a carnival, I have been looking for years, hopefully the storynline is eneough to identify.
Thankyou for offering your expertise!
Sorry for the delay, but I'd misplaced your question, and just now , was able to find it.
I'm not sure if I have an answer for you,...but the film you describe sounds so much like a
wonderful Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical entitled "CAROUSEL" that I think it might be the one.
It's from 20th Century Fox, around 1956, in color, and starred Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones. ( There was an earlier film version of the same story, made in the 1930's, in B&W , which wasn't a musical, called "Liliom".)
