I saw this on tv late night once, and what I can remember of it was: a young man is waiting in the hospital for his wife to deliver their 1st child, when the doctor tells him that his wife and child aren’t going to survive.
He goes (I think) to the chapel, and prays that God please take him instead of them; the doors open and he walks through the foggy/misty doorway.
His wife and daughter live, with daddy’s spirit right there watching out for them, and his daughter can see and talk to him. That’s what really stuck out in my mind.
I can’t remember who starred in it or what exact decade it was made; possibly sometime between ’40 and ’50 (unsure), but no database search has helped so far.
Can anyone help me?
