USA 1946

WWI newlyweds Claudette Colbert and Orson Welles meet heartbreak when he goes missing in action and is written off as dead. Pregnant with Welles' child, she ultimately marries her boss, industrialist George Brent. Twenty years pass; war clouds are once more gathering over Europe. Brent brings over to work in his firm a Viennese chemist who turns out to be -- Orson Welles, bringing in tow a blonde, very young (her debut, in fact) Natalie Wood, speaking German.

Ever the gemutlich gentleman, Welles keeps his cards close to his vest, even when talking about the "situation overseas" with the strapping lad he now realizes is his son, who wants to enlist in the Canadian Air Force.

Despite imdb listing this film as a film noir, this is far from it. Tomorrow Is Forever is a well acted melodrama with Orson Welles and Claudette Colbert as a husband and wife torn from each other by World War I. George Brent is a new husband and Natalie Wood in her first credited performance is an adopted daughter of Orson's character. Unfortunately, the deep message of the picture gets side tracked by all the melodramatics, but it's a worth while effort especially from film's stars.

The MGM made-on-demand disc starts with an old United Artists logo that dates back from the VHS era of home video. The print is decent, but not clean with many marks and specs flying by. The mono soundtrack is unremarkable as well, but without any damage or distortion. There are no extras and, per usual standard, nor subtitles or closed captioning.
