Barbara Stanwyck

There’s Always Tomorrow

The conformity and complacency of the postwar American Dream are vividly conveyed in this tale of adulterous temptation.

USA 1955
Dir Douglas Sirk
With Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Joan Bennett, Jane Darwell
84min
35mm
Certificate PG

Stanwyck and MacMurray reunited for another tale of adulterous temptation: he’s a toy manufacturer feeling neglected by his wife and kids, and she is the ex-employee whose return to Pasadena reignites illicit passions. This being Sirk, rather than film noir, any deadliness is metaphorical; the claustrophobic conformism and complacency of the postwar American Dream are vividly conveyed by direction and performances alike.
