Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND. Basically, it's made up of two separate words mank and ind. What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

Synopsis: The Devil arranges for a deceased gangster to return to Earth as a well-respected judge to make up for his previous life.

Reaction: More drama than comedy despite being placed in a collection of classic comedies. Other than that, this one is interesting and well done.

Personal Rating: 7/10
