Beyond Tomorrow

1940

Three ghosts try to help two young lovers whom they knew when alive in this Christmas classic. IMDb


Beyond Tomorrow (also known as And So Goodbye) is a 1940 American fantasy film directed by A. Edward Sutherland and produced by noted cinematographer Lee Garmes; Garmes was one of a handful of cinematographers who became film producers. The film starred a trio of veteran character actors, Harry Carey (actor born 1878), C. Aubrey Smith and Charles Winninger. It also featured a rare appearance by Maria Ouspenskaya. Because the events of the plot take place during the Christmas season, it is a contemporary but little-remembered example of the His wish is granted and James returns to life. Michael is reunited with a now-repentant George, and both are admitted into Heaven.
