Event Details

There’s Always Tomorrow (1956)
B&W Film Screening

An NCPA & Film Heritage Foundation Presentation

Between his twin masterpieces All That Heaven Allows and Written on the Wind, Douglas Sirk created this razor-sharp study of male crisis, both a glittering testament to love’s labours lost and his most unforgiving vision of suburban conformity.

Disregarded and neglected by his family, executive toy manufacturer Clifford Groves (Fred MacMurray) is unexpectedly reunited with his former co-worker Norma Vale (Barbara Stanwyck). As the old friends catch up on lost time, his children’s suspicions and hostility to the new relationship threaten to push their father away permanently and throw into disarray the lives of all concerned.

With crystalline, noir-tinged cinematography from Russell Metty (Touch of Evil) and heartbreaking performances by Stanwyck and MacMurray, reunited 12 years after Double Indemnity in their final on-screen pairing, There’s Always Tomorrow finds one of Hollywood’s greatest dramatists at his finest.

Director: Douglas Sirk
Screenplay: Bernard C. Schoenfeld
Based on a story by Ursula Parrott
Cinematography: Russell Metty
Music by Herman Stein and Heinz Roemheld
Cast: Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Bennett, William Reynolds & Pat Crowley
