Ted B 3.5 stars; Well. There was nothing really new here.... Another crime noir movie about a man and his girl running from the law. The acting was adequate to support a low-budget film, and typical of the early 1950s. All that being said, I couldn't stop watching this film. There is an empathy for the characters, who are victims of circumstance and find love along the way. I found myself rooting for them to get away. The ending was very satisfying. As was mentioned in the introduction to this movie, I will never look at a car carrier again. and not think about this movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/03/24 Full Review bob c Kept me interested for most of the film although there were a few slow parts. Acting was good throughout and I would recommend it Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/10/23 Full Review Murty C This is quite an interesting crime drama, not so much for the crime but for the resulting sequence of events that befall a couple escaping from the law for a murder that one of them committed. Both the leads - Ruth Roman and Steve Cochran - gave excellent performances as a couple tormented by their secret. The film is particularly helped by the fine cinematography of Robert Burks, who was Alfred Hitchcock's cinematographer in a dozen movies. My only peeve about the film is it's ending, which seems too pat. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/13/22 Full Review Audience Member Jailed at the age of 13 for killing his abusive father Bill Clark (Steve Cochran) is released at the age 33. Trying to rejoin society as a man-child Clark becomes involved in a crime with Cathy Higgins (Ruth Roman). That's how this compelling noir begins. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review ashley h Tomorrow Is Another Day is a decent film. It is about a man who spent his formative years in prison for murder is released. Steve Cochran and Ruth Roman give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Felix E. Feist did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Nifty little film noir that I'd never hear of that was shown as part of TCM's Summer of Darkness. Steve Cochran plays a man released from prison following his murder of his fathers some 15 years earlier. Cochran hooks up with a dance hall girl, Ruth Roman, but when her police office boyfriend finds them together the two scuffle, Cochran is knocked out and when he awaken her boyfriend has been shot dead. The two then go on the run and the film takes on the mantel of a young-lovers-on-the-run film. The main weakness of the film (SPOILER ALERT) is the deus ex machina happy ending, which is suspected to have been studio tampering after negative audience reaction at preview screenings to the original grim ending, which likely would have led this film to being considered a real classic.
