The New Generation of Classic Short Stories

Vol. 3, No. 4


by William Faulkner


First published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1940, "Tomorrow" inspired a television movie, feature film, and play, all of the same title. The television adaptation of the story, directed by Robert Mulligan, aired in 1960. In 1972, Tomorrow premiered on film, starring Robert Duvall—in his first leading role, as Jackson Fentry—and Olga Bellin. The movie was directed by Joseph Anthony, with a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winner Horton Foote, who also wrote a play based on the story.

You can read "Tomorrow" in the print edition of Zoetrope: All-Story.
