Hold Back Tomorrow (1955) is an American feature film released by Universal-International.


A death row inmate has one final request before his impending hanging: he wants to spend the night with a woman. The police bring him a suicidal prostitute. After a night of lovemaking, the two are married by the prison chaplain. Just before going to the gallows, he describes a dream he had where the rope breaks during the hanging, the death bell rings, and he is freed. As he prays for his miracle the death bell tolls and the film fades to black.



This was the second film to costar Moore and Agar, who had appeared together in 1954's Bait, which was also directed by Hugo Haas. Agar was a Universal contract player at the time of this film; Moore was on loan from Columbia Pictures.
