'It Happened Tomorrow' vs 'Early Edition'
Don't read if you plan on getting the DVD of this movie*
I agree with the poster on the Early Edition page that the show is based on this movie.They should have given credit to the writers of this film and the person who came up with the idea who name is in the credits.The movie was an adaptation of a book,which also was done as a play.
Tomorrow -Larry,the Prof and Sylvia/Early Edition-Gary,Chuck and Marissa
Larry & Gary both get tomorrow's newspaper
Larry's by an old man who worked for the newspaper(now dead)/Gary's by the cat who belonged to an old man who worked for the newspaper(now dead)
Larry & Garry -both save people they learn are in jeopardy from the paper.
" " "-both used the paper to make money at the track.
" "-both get arrested repeatedly by the same cop when they use the paper.
" "-both see want-ad for job and go a day early only to see a person get fired then thereby validating the want-ad.
" "-both see their obituary in the paper.
" "-both have a connection to a hotel but not the same way.
"Larry chasing a thief runs by a store named Hobbs and Son.
Gary's last name is Hobson.
The main difference is Larry wanted to keep getting the paper while Gary thought it was a curse.However Larry did come to see the paper as a curse.
