Production and reception

From Hell to Heaven was Paramount's effort to replicate the success of Grand Hotel (1932), which had won the Academy Award for Best Picture for MGM the year before.[1] Reviews were favorable; Mordaunt Hall of The New York Times wrote, "It is not as ambitious a picture as Grand Hotel, but it is interesting."[2]
