STEVE COCHRAN & RUTH ROMAN IN 'TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY'

Steve Cochran in TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY Year: 1951 Rating: **1/2

While it's not strange having swarthy and handsome, experienced tough guy Steve Cochran playing an ex con who, in this case is fresh out of prison after a very long stretch since he was a teenager, it's extremely rare him being an awkwardly naive dolt falling hard for a woman instead of being fallen for...

But this is a Film Noir where almost every man, tough or otherwise, winds up putty to a beautiful dame... in this case a worldly Ruth Roman who, after accidentally killing an abusive boyfriend cop, convinces Cochran's Bill Clark into thinking he's the killer instead...

And for a melodrama the booming score fits but becomes a too noisy and intrusive for dialogue with little action... while the best scenes have the couple on the road after a quick off-screen wedding...

But the honeymoon doesn't last long enough for TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY to merit the potential thrills that the on-the-run plot promises: instead bordering on soap opera territory where Cochran needed his usual alpha charisma, while Roman's femme fatale lacks the seductive prowess for the poor guy to become such a complete sap for, and so quickly.
