Reporter Dick Powell comes into daily possession of tomorrow’s newspapers, a fantastic premise that leads mostly to trouble with the law, when he can’t explain why he knows about crimes before they’re committed, etc. It also doesn’t help that his girlfriend Linda Darnell assists in a clairvoyant’s act. Director RenĂ© Clair gives this film blanc the needed light touch, aided by great supporting work from the likes of Jack Oakie, Edgar Kennedy and Edward Brophy. Charlie Largent offers an enthusiastic review of this smart restoration. On Blu-ray from Cohen Film Collection/Kino.
