The Man Who Saw Tomorrow ( 1922 ) - Lost Silent ?
17 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In trying to decide whom to marry, Rita Pring ( Leatrice Joy ), the daughter of a South Seas ship captain, or Lady Helen Deene ( June Elvidge ), an Englishwoman with wealth and influence, Burke Hammond ( Thomas Meighan ) decide to consult Professor Jansen ( John Miltern ), a psychologist. Jansen induces in Burke a hypnotic trance in which he sees his future with each of the women. If he marries Helen, he will have fame, material comforts, and political power, but no love from his wife. If he marries Rita, his life will be humble but happy until Captain Morgan Pring's ( Theodore Roberts ) first mate, Jim McLeod ( Albert Roscoe ), stirs up trouble and a shot is fired at Burke. Jansen cannot tell if the shot means death to Burke, nevertheless, Burke unhesitatingly chooses life with Rita.

This 1922 silent romance/drama was produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring popular silent screen stars, Thomas Meighan and Leatrice Joy. The survival status of The Man Who Saw Tomorrow is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
