Writer Helene E. Fraenkel, who was working on her first film, observed Jack Oakie answering dialogue cues in his own words and generally rewriting his part. Clair observed that the actor always conveyed the information that was necessary, albeit in his own words. Fraenkel was surprised that Clair didn't seem threatened by these changes and, in fact, seemed to welcome them. See more »

Attention "Early Edition" and "Twilight Zone" fans.
If you are a fan of the TV show "Early Edition" it should be noteworthy that it was based on the film "It Happened Tomorrow," director Rene Clair's 1944 fantasy follow-up to his own "I Married a Witch."
This early "Early Edition" is a classic film whose story is like one of the great "Twilight Zone" episodes complete with twists, irony and a lesson to be learned. In comparison to contemporary offerings it is nice to see a film that is both fun and intelligent. Though technically a drama, this film has plenty of comedy too.
One of my favorite actresses, Lynda Darnell ("Forever Amber"), co-stars along side Dick Powell and one of the great comedic side-kick actors of all time Jack Oakie. Comedy film buffs watch for Eddie Acuff (the mailman in the Blondie series) in an uncredited role.
