Summary

Roland Young stars in H.G. Wells' light-hearted comedy about what happens when some bored celestials decide to give "an ordinary little fellow" the power to work miracles just to see what he will do with it. George, a draper's assistant, is suddenly endowed with the mystical powers. But when he still can't win the love of Ada, he slowly begins to realize that he has omnipotence over everything except the human mind. Soon others become aware of his power and it seems that everyone can think of ways to use his gift to their own advantage. A remarkable film (though the source materials, seemingly derived from a circulating print, are not as remarkable as they could or should be).
