Beyond Tomorrow (1940) FULL MOVIE – Stars: Harry Carey, C. Aubrey Smith, Charles Winninger

Beyond Tomorrow is a 1940 American fantasy film directed by A. Edward Sutherland. In it, a trio of ghosts try to help two young lovers whom they knew when alive (and first befriended on Christmas Eve).
Melton, Chadwick and O’Brien, rich but lonely heads of an engineering firm, invite three strangers to dinner on Christmas Eve. Only two show up, James and Jean, they fall in love and become friends with their three benefactors…until the latter are killed in a plane crash and come back to their old home as ghosts. In the coming months, true love encounters some rough spots; can ghostly O’Brien help the young folks?
This was the most famous of the handful of films produced by Lee Garmes. Garmes was better known as one of the industry’s leading Directors of Photography.

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film’s copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film. (Though, your friendly uploader brought to you the best version available.)

Re-released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in 2004 under the title “Beyond Christmas”. DVD has both the restored B&W version plus a color version of the 1940 movie.

  1. What a Wonderful Movie! indeed the Spirit of Man is Eternal! There would be no Purpose to life if it all would end on a grave. Nature is not waistful and is to subtle for everything to end on a grave or an urn. God, the Prime force to which we are all a part of is to immense to vast for it is all all true love which is greater than Knowledge! Love, God is the true essence of life and the real and rue Wisdom.
