What's up, Mr. Drake?
You of course know this 'Black Ace.'
Oh, sure. We *just* missed catching him about 6 months ago.
Sure, we trapped one of his earwiggers. It was like this: I'm wise this guy blatts out for stoolin'. So I'm crowdin' him wit' the heater but he don't belch. I know he's an alky stiff so I start feedin' him the dynamite when Clancy walks in wit' this guy's twist. She's all full o' happy dust and leapin'.

Despite a good cast, the writing and direction are pretty awful at times.
The DVD for "Tomorrow at Seven" by Alpha Video is not especially high in quality. One thing all Alpha releases have in common is that the company does nothing to restore the films to watchable pictures. This one has a decent quality picture but the sound is VERY annoying--as there is a his that constantly fades in and out. You can't help but notice it and I would assume most people would just stop watching it because of this. I, however, am a masochist and watched the entire DVD.
"Tomorrow at Seven" is a murder whodunnit about an unknown killer who refers to himself as 'The Black Ace'. To help investigate the murders is Chester Morris (who is good as usual) and two half-witted jerks (Alan Jenkins and Frank McHugh) who pretty much ruin the film. Their stupid detective routines runs VERY thin after a while and even for a 1930s murder film, they are incredibly stupid and 100% unbelievable. A couple of tomatoes in these roles would have been more believable and enjoyable. It's a shame, as I usually like these two supporting actors in films but their parts were just way overdone and seriously impeded an otherwise decent plot. It's sad, as Charles Middleton, Henry Stephenson, Grant Mitchell, Chester Morris, Frank McHugh and Allan Jenkins make up would should be a very good cast--the director should have been able to put these folks to better use.
