Product Details

What would happen if someone could get tomorrow's newspaper headlines today? This charming comedy tells the story of a turn of the century newspaper reporter (Dick Powell) who wishes he could scoop his colleagues by knowing about events before they occur. Then 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 brilliant fortune teller (Linda Darnell) and her overprotective uncle (the always underrated Jack Oakie). It Happened Tomorrow was acclaimed director René Clair's (A Nous la Liberté) follow-up to his equally enchanting I Married a Witch, both made during a World War II exile in Hollywood. Clair's famous whimsical style is evident in this cautionary tale; be careful -- what you wish for might come true. This sparkling black and white film was mastered from a 35mm print restored by the UCLA Film Archive.
