Angels in Movies and Television: Before 1970
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.
