It Came Upon the Midnight Clear is a 1984 made-for-TV movie directed by Peter H. Hunt.
The film stars Mickey Rooney as Mike Halligan, a grandfather who dies shortly before Christmas. He makes a deal to return to earth to spend one last Christmas with his grandson Robbie, played by Scott Grimes. He is also tasked with finding a wayward angel, and is extremely discouraged to find the complete absence of any Christmas spirit in his old hometown of New York City.
