Tomorrow Never Comes

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Young Frank (McHattie) returns from out-of-town to learn that his girl Janie (George) has given herself to a local big-shot (Osborne) in return for a teak-veneered cabana in the grounds of his luxury hotel. A nasty blow on the head in a bar fight has the effect of a lobotomy, and mild-mannered Frank is transformed into a twitchy psychopath. He holds Janie hostage in the cabana, and demands that her white-suited seducer make an appearance. Ollie Reed lumbers into the picture as a cheerless policeman who looks for the non-violent solution in the face of small-town political corruption. A drab, lightweight film with an extremely overweight cast from whom Collinson has extracted embarrassingly eccentric performances, notably Raymond Burr as a police chief who plays with clockwork toys. But what else can you do with such a crass script?
