Production and reception
The Unknown Tomorrow was the first film made by Korda in Germany, after he had left Austria following the failure of Samson and Delilah. The film was a financial success, and Korda used his share of the profits to buy a stake in the film distribution company FIHAG. Werner Krauss's performance has been noted for its expressionist acting, even though much of the rest of the film is non-expressionist.
