Movie Info

Susan Hayward pulls out all the stops, and then some, in this cinemadaptation of singer Lillian Roth's autobiography I'll Cry Tomorrow. In as harshly realistic a manner as possible in the still censor-dominated Hollywood of 1955, the film recounts Roth's rise to fame, her precipitous fall and her tearful comeback. The fact that Roth loves not wisely but too well is only part of the problem (only two of her eight husbands are portrayed in the film); contributing factors to her self-destruction

In the '40s, Hayward had a distinctive and rather bitchy sex appeal and clear hunger for stardom that gave way in the '50s to a weary but still authoritative command of frank self-pity and tough-broad defiance.

We always love Susan Hayward

Apelando vez por outra para o melodrama, o filme resiste ao tempo grašas Ó performance corajosa de Susan Hayward e Ó forma realista com que retrata o drama do alcoolismo.

Audience Reviews for I'll Cry Tomorrow

1950's bio-pic about the rise and fall (and rise) of actress/singer Lillian Roth. A melodramatic take on alcoholism that rivals The Lost Weekend.

Okay, there were a few moments when the sap was thick enough to draw flies, but overall one hell of a performance from the vivacious Miss H. A must-see for Susan Hayward fans of all ages.

Susan Hayward seemed to relish these roles on the edge of what was expected in American cinema in the 50s. Here is the no holds barred biopic of Lillian Roth that raised the bar for biography films to an unprecedented level.
