Oh! Heavenly Dog is a 1980 comedy film written by Rod Browning. The film stars Benjean, billed here as Benji (she was the daughter of Higgins, who originated the role of Benji), Chevy Chase, Jane Seymour and Omar Sharif. The film was directed by Joe Camp and released by 20th Century Fox.
Chevy Chase plays a private investigator who is called to a job and is killed after finding a dead woman. The afterlife has not decided if he is destined for Heaven or Hell, so he is given the chance to return to Earth as a dog in order to solve the case and earn his way to Heaven.
