An An Angel Passed Over Brooklyn
Older black and white film. Peter Ustinov as a mean landlord who
abuses everyone. Finally, he goes to far with an old woman who
tells fairy tales to neighborhood children.
She pays him a visit, turns him into a dog. Tells him he spent his
entire life mistreating others. He has made himself impossible to
love. The only way to break the spell is to have someone love him.
He spents most of the movie being mistreated by many people. He
meets a boy, whom he protects from bullies and helps out in various
ways. At the end with the dogcatcher and police about to kill him (
believing he is a dangerous life-threatening dog ), the boy tells
him that he loves him and the man's humanity is restored.
