An angel telling dad he's about to die reuiring amends and farewells to family and friends Disney must have felt that Fred MacMurray needed range in his part interaction with someone else say Harry Morgan as the angel and that the stories from the book alone couldn't attract a 1975 audience It's true that other heart warming stories that have remained in broadcast rotation regularly came from either the 1980s or what we would kindly call the vintage era so perhaps Disney made the right decision for the times But the book stands alone as warm sweet funny I did laugh out loud while reading a few times and charming well worth the read And I look forward to other Stanton works
