Waiting for the Light ★★½ 1990 (PG)

When a woman takes over a small-town diner, she gets the surprise of her life. Seems an angel has made his home there and now the townsfolk are flocking to see him. MacLaine is wonderful and Garr is fetching and likeable. Set during the Cuban missile crisis. Enjoyable, tame comedy. 94m/C VHS, DVD . Shirley Mac-Laine, Teri Garr, Vincent Schiavelli, John Bedford Lloyd; D: Christopher Monger; W: Christopher Monger.
