  • Noir romance

    I have never see a film noir before with such a touching central love story.All the other elements of noir were there but the viewer is quickly pulled into the couple's discovery of each other. Beautifully written dialogue as two characters with hardened hearts slowly trust each other. The cinematography was brilliant. The pattern of featuring small indoor scenarios and letting them unfold as the camera suddenly looked out the window of a car or building taking you into the next scene, was a very elegant way to move the story along.The ending was a bit abrupt and felt tacked on, but the film is redeemed by all it's other merits.

  • Innocence found.

    When my grandfather first left home at the age of sixteen, I'm told he once put mustard on his chocolate cake. This film has a heartening scene in which the male lead, played by Steve Cochran, drinks a beer with three pieces of pie -- ordered at once! I thought of my Grandfather.Maybe that's why I liked "Tomorrow is Another Day" as much as I did. The film captures the deer-in-the-headlights of emotion that can come from leaving home for the first time. Sure, ostensibly this a film noir piece about a man getting out of jail, but deep down it has "coming of age drama" written all over it. Jail being the symbol for the home and childhood -- think:jail as womb! Heavy man! Ruth Roman plays the surrogate mommy to baby-face Steve Cochran. Both are fantastic. The director's ending, sad, was dumped in favor of the producer's happier one. The success of the auteur theory, which -- in a word -- says the director is god, has created a general distrust of the producer among film theorist. Be that as it may, I'm glad they picked the happy ending. So shoot me, and when you're done, throw away your gat!

  • Disappointed in the Czar

    A little disappointed in Eddie, given his Shockproof observation, in not giving credit for his "Gun Crazy written by Steinbeck" characterization (see IMDb user reviews).

  • the costanza crisis.

    seemingly everything and nothing to make it film noir.. or not.

  • Very Good

    I admit Ruth Roman owns me, she is flat out beautiful and alluring! Good movie, good cast, good pace. In B & W which enhances the drama. Lurenne Tuttle was well know to me for her many radio performances including, as I recall, Effie to Howard Duff's Sam Spade.

  • Steve Cochran

    I know Steve wasn't such a great actor but he sure knew how to light up a screen! I can watch him all day long. Even quit smoking on his birthday. I think he's the most handsome actor Hollywood has ever had.

  • Ruth Roman Rocks

    Ruth Roman as a blonde. Nice. Steve Cochrane is a poor substitute for John Garfield and is the weakest actor other than the kid.Ray Teal and Lurene Tuttle give their usual strong support. The first half has a good noirish feel for NYC. Second half is a rosier version of Grapes of Wrath. Ludicrous but enjoyable happy ending. This film is nicely representative of a 50s B.

  • Tommorow Is Another Day

    My favorite part of this movie is when Mrs. Dawson is about to leave the hospital room where her husband is in critical condition all bandaged up after being in a bad automobile wreck and he says to her "You were right, the brakes were bad". I know this is a drama, but I couldn't help but laugh at his statement. I enjoyed the movie.

  • Great Punch Line at Lettace Farm

    • Mike Bianco
    • 1/2/10

    One line in this movie made an ever lasting impression on me. It was when Steve Cochran goes into a rant at the lettace farm about how he can't take the hard work any longer and says he is getting out of there. Ruth Roman then tears into him for always running out on people, on difficult situations, and he responds, after a pause, "I never said anything about going anywhere without you!" It all but makes me cry to this day, some 50 years later.
