Overview

Bernard Malamud seldom saw his works faithfully transferred to the screen (take a look at The Natural sometime), but he issued no complaints over the cinemazation of his Angel Levine. Zero Mostel plays an elderly Jew named Morris Mishkin, whose life experiences have left him an embittered agnostic. Into Mostel's life floats Alexander Levine (Harry Belafonte), who must convince the old man that life has value, else he'll never earn his wings. The Angel Levine was lovingly adapted for the screen by Bill Gunn and Ronald Ribman.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tana Hobart
With a hackneyed plotline almost lifted intact from "It's A Wonderful Life," this is still a worthwhile movie due to the appeal and acting ability of the cast. What is lacking in originality is made up by Zero Mostel and Harry Belafonte. Mostel portrays a despondent old Jewish man who has gone through personal and business crises and has lost his faith - both in God and himself. Belafonte plays an angel who has to earn his wings by bringing Mostel back to the fold by proving that his life still has meaning.
