Matter of Life and Death, A (1946)

If you haven’t, you should watch A Matter of Life and Death. It was released in the US under the title of Stairway to Heaven. It’s a charming story about a pilot who dies after being shot down in a plane and whether love can save him. It’s got David Niven and a very cute Kim Hunter. This is a charming story. One interesting thing is that like the Wizard of Oz, it’s shot in color and black and white, but the scenes on Earth are in color and heaven is in black and white.
