Production and reception[edit]

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]
