Dial M For Movies

A weepie family drama tailor-made for Douglas Sirk that is ably but too rationally directed by Irving Pichel.

Audience Reviews for Tomorrow Is Forever


two good things about this one 1) Orson Welles with a beard and 2) it revived his career after the whole hard knocks of Hollywood. It is ultimately the most melodramatic movie I've seen of Welles and I couldn't help but laugh at how ridiculous it seemed to be at times but the ending was bittersweet.

The plot is certainly a little far fetched and melodramatic but it is an engrossing and well made films as well. With Claudette Colbert and Orson Welles heading the cast, it's hard to go wrong. Nice art direction. It's quite interesting seeing a very young Natalie Wood.
