dc.description.abstract This discussion of purgatory and its influence in the popular imagination relies on film as the medium of expression. The five movies selected, Jacob's Ladder, Defending Your Life, Heaven Can Wait, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, and Heart and Souls, all depict differing thoughts about purgatory. Since the concept of purgatory has changed over time, the concepts in these movies also change. A history of the beliefs about purgatory and how those beliefs have changed, along with the examination of the five movies depicting various characteristics of purgatory, is the main purpose of this thesis.
