Angels in Movies and Television: Before 1970

Clarence the Angel from It's a Wonderful Life

By Nell Minow

Angels have appeared in comedies, dramas, cartoons, television series, and even in musicals. Hard to believe that performers from Jack Benny to Cary Grant to Donald Duck have taken on an angelic role. These angels are usually included in the story to guide the main character, but quite often they end up learning something, too.

Check out this gallery of my favorite angels in movies and on television before 1970.
