The film's title It/ll Be Better Tomorrow is taken from Selby's novel, The Demon, the slash is included in Selby's typography.
In the film, Selby explains that, on his manual typewriter, an apostrophe meant typing an "uppercase 8", so it was simpler to use a slash. Selby objects to apostrophes generally, preferring the spelling "dont" to "don't".
