Storyline

Julie Bronson (Jean Parker), whose father, "Pop" Bronson (Emmett Lynn) operates a desert café, is attracting the unwanted attention of a half-crazed gangster known as The Ghost (Ricardo Cortez) who runs a desert night club several miles away. The Ghost knows that "Pop" Bronson is an escaped convict and blackmails him into using his desert shack as a warehouse for "hot" stolen rubber tires to be sold on the Black Market. In an effort to save her father, Julie sends her sweetheart, Bob Lord (William Marshall) an army lieutenant stationed at a nearby desert camp, away. A rival gang, led by Kohler (Frank Hagney), wrecks the crime czar's "pleasure of palace" and gives him a beating. The Ghost, believing Pop Bronson responsible, goes to his desert café and brutally shoots him before the horrified eyes of Julie. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Did They Know About Lucky Luciano's Contribution To The War Effort
17 July 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I see so far I'm in a minority here for some folks are finding all kinds of murky and mysterious meanings in Tomorrow We Live. All I'm looking at is a Grade Z piece of melodramatic claptrap. Poor Ricardo Cortez's career had come to a pretty pass here for a guy who was the last player billed OVER Greta Garbo back in silent days. And a rival in the Latin lover department to Rudolph Valentino besides.

Cortez's character 'the Ghost' is a veiled reference to Lucky Luciano who got his nickname by surviving a hit attempt as did Cortez. He's got himself a nice little gambling spot out on the desert in some unnamed western state that I think we can assume is Nevada. He's got the hots for Jean Parker and he's also got a hold on her father Emmett Lynn who runs a nearby truck-stop greasy spoon like café. The kind that Cecil Kellaway had in The Postman Always Rings Twice.

Anyway Cortez has Lynn working in a black market tire racket and Parker submitting herself to his Snidely Whiplash advances. She actually throws over her all American soldier boyfriend William Marshall for Cortez. But Marshall tells off Cortez that he's going overseas to fight guys like him.

Anyway the film was made too soon because Lucky Luciano due to efforts by the War Department got himself paroled and deported to Cuba for allegedly setting up contacts with the Italian Mafia for OSS operatives in Italy. That came after Tomorrow We Live was inflicted on the movie going public which does give this film a certain amount historical curiosity.

But definitely not worth the little over an hour of my life I'll not get back.
