Movie Info

What would happen if someone could get tomorrow's newspaper headlines today? This charming period comedy tells the story of a reporter (Dick Powell) who wishes he could scoop his colleagues by knowing about events before they occur. When a mysterious old man gives him the news a day in advance, his life is turned upside down. Racing to prevent a headline predicting his own death, he gets mixed up with a beautiful fortune teller (Linda Darnell) and her overprotective uncle (Jack Oakie)

    Like one of those "cute" Twilight Zone episodes, this imagines the complications if a soul received the daily paper one day early. "Zany" antics unfold. Television was right around the corner, which would kill the box office for this kind of thing, which is too long for a movie. The major flaw of the piece wasn't apparent when it first appeared but now is like a thumb in your eye: it plays like a corny teevee show, missing only the corny canned laughter (which used to be included, I hate to say it, mainly because some of the older audiences were too dumb to know when to laugh and so were prodded like dumb animals). Just like the old teevee shows a lot of the comic bits are repeated over and over. Jack Oakie's eye-rolling is simply out-of-control. Dick Powell is a little old for his character while Linda Darnell is ravishing but as interesting as a biscuit. Meh.

    This movie is sort of sci-fi , sort of comedy, and sort of a thriller, and mixes these genres well. I enjoyed this movie, and I recommend it.

    Cute premise, not perfectly executed but pleasantly charming fantasy. Linda Darnell is almost unbelievably beautiful.
