4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing fantasy 27 Dec 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Larry Stevens (Dick Powell) is a reporter who is mysteriously given the following day's newspapers by Pop Benson (John Philliber). At the same time, he begins to date Sylvia (Linda Darnell) who works as part of a stage act with Cigolini (Jack Oakie). Larry and Sylvia turn up to events that are yet to happen. What happens when Larry reads about his own death....?..

The film has a good story and Dick Powell is funny as the reporter who knows it all. There are some funny scenes, eg, at the racetrack where he predicts all the winners, and when he is resigned to his own death and just has to accept it. Jack Oakie can be generally irritating but he is not so bad in this film. The cast all do well and the film is a slice of fun with a couple of twists at the end.

A very good film that doesn't seem to get much airing on the TV. Good transfer to DVD, picture and sound wise. Really good acting. Rather entertaining film.

4.0 out of 5 stars For those who like Dick Powell and Linda Darnell 24 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dick Powell has always been one of my favorite actors. In the never to be forgotten "42nd Street" to his tough guy image in " Farewell my Lovely" he has proved his acting ability beyond doubt.
In " It Happened Tomorrow " he plays an ambitious newspaper man in a comedy role ably assisted by the beautiful Linda Darnell and the one and only Jack Oakie. The somewhat crazy story takes on a supernatural theme and provides some good entertainment. It's a pity that Mr Powell has to be wearing a moustache but then we can't
have everything, can we ?
