Beyond Tomorrow (1940) Poster

Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

This film was first telecast in New York 23 December 1946 on the DuMont Television Network's WABD (Channel 5) and in Los Angeles 21 December 1947 on DuMont's KTLA (Channel 5), and has been rebroadcast more times than anyone can count, and probably more times than any other film, on countless stations and cable systems everywhere, usually as a staple of the Holiday Season, both because of its public domain status and its popularity among viewers as a seasonal attraction. In more recent years, It's now been restored and is shown annually on Turner Classic Movies, maintaining a tradition that goes back almost 70 years. In Baltimore it first aired Wednesday 10 March 1948 on WMAR (Channel 2), in Detroit Sunday 9 May 1948 on WWJ (Channel 2), and in Chicago Thursday 23 December 1948 on freshly launched WNBQ (Channel 5).
