Tomorrow Is Another Day
Dir. Felix Feist. 1951, 90 mins. 35mm. With Steve Cochran, Ruth Roman. A man imprisoned at thirteen is released at thirty-one, a child in a man’s body, sweetly naive but suspicious and belligerent. Falling for a hard-boiled taxi-dancer, he winds up on the run after they kill a policeman. Together they flee New York and discover a hard-scrabble country still marked by the Depression, ultimately toiling as lettuce pickers in Salinas. This modest B noir is distinguished by its fully dimensional characters and richly detailed evocation of the dance halls, truck stops, motels, and migrant camps they move through, as their initially hostile relationship evolves into love—but whom can they trust?
