In the 1946 drama One More Tomorrow, "Oomph Girl" Ann Sheridan stars as Christie Sage, a photographer for The Bantam, a liberal publication in danger of going bankrupt. When Tom (Dennis Morgan), a wealthy playboy, falls for her and tries to help, Christie is skeptical of his privileged background and resists. Heartbroken, Tom soon winds up in a rebound marriage to a scheming gold-digger (Alexis Smith), but he can't forget Christie -- the girl who truly has his heart. With an appealing love story at its core, One More Tomorrow explores issues of class, ethics and greed in modern society.
One More Tomorrow was the second cinematic adaptation of Philip Barry's socially conscious 1932 play The Animal Kingdom. The first, filmed in 1932 and titled after the play, had starred Ann Harding, Leslie Howard and Myrna Loy. One More Tomorrow updated the action of the play for modern wartime moviegoers, but watered down some of its politics in favor of appealing to a broader audience.
A fine cast of actors is one of One More Tomorrow's greatest assets. Ann Sheridan and Dennis Morgan give strong performances as the leads, with excellent support from Jack Carson as Tom's loyal butler and Jane Wyman as Christie's assistant and friend.
