America on the March...

...brings you a special event.

When war ended last year,

numberless plans were proposed...

...for the advancement

of peace and prosperity.

But from among them has emerged one...

...which has captured

the imagination of the world.

It's popularity enhanced by the fact...

...that it's presented

in the form of a novel.

Here is Tomorrow

by Christopher Madden...

...is a blueprint of the future

which offers a daring concept...

...of how man

can shape his own destiny.

Mark Winston,

the hero of this unusual book...

...has become the center

of controversy...

...which could not be greater were he

a living, breathing leader of the people.

Says fortunate publisher,

Philip Jerome:

Here is Tomorrow has led the best

selling list for 16 consecutive weeks.

It has been translated

for worldwide distribution.

As with all bestsellers...

...Here is Tomorrow goes to Hollywood.

To be produced by Henry Baldwin.

With Cary Grant as Mark Winston.

And Lana Turner as the girl.

Says Producer Baldwin:

I am proud of the honor and privilege...

...of bringing

Here is Tomorrow to the screen.

It will be the most important picture

of my career.

Beautiful speech, Mr. Baldwin.

Later, Charlie, later.

People in every walk of life

have been influenced by the book.

From the highest...

For my money, this book offers

the best answer yet to all our problems.

...to the lowest.

I've come to America 32 years ago.

It's great country.

And Here is Tomorrow will surely

get us out of the hole.

And in the Senate of the United States:

Everyone should read this book.

It is a blueprint for happiness

politically, socially and spiritually.

It gives me great pride

that it was a member of my own sex...

...who pointed the way.

Christopher Madden is a woman.

A girl in shining armor.

An American Joan of Arc.

And now, the authoress herself,

Ms. Christopher Madden.

As she parries questions

from journalists...

...representing the press of the world...

...prior to her departure for Hollywood

to adapt her book for the screen.

Ms. Madden, how does it feel

to be called America's Joan of Arc?

Well, I only wrote a book,

I didn't intend to head a movement.

So did Harriet Beecher Stowe,

and look what happened.

Did you model Mark Winston

after an actual person?

Any resemblance between

Mark Winston...

...and any living person

is purely coincidental.

But he's very real to me.

You see, I lived with him for two years.

Morning, noon and night

as I wrote the book.

I know everything about him:

His tastes, his habits...

...the books he reads,

the music he likes.

It's an experience I'll never forget.

Whether Christopher Madden

and her Mark Winston...

...will make American history,

only time can tell.

America on the March.

- Jack, you've done a wonderful job.

- Thanks.

This reel will be in every theater

in the country.

Wonderful. Get Ms. Madden

in New York on the phone.

It's too late. It's 4:00 in New York

now. She's about to get on the train.

Potter, did you send the invitations

to the reception?

Oh, yes, Mr. Baldwin.

The mayor will speak at the station,

the governor at dinner.

- Fine, and I want everyone to be there.

- We've invited everybody.

Did you wire Madden about Grant?

Yes, Mr. Baldwin, I sent it to the train,

Grand Central Station.

- She should be receiving it now.

- Fine.

The whole office was terribly upset.

We didn't even tell Mr. Baldwin.

We just couldn't get anything


But from Chicago,

you'll have a drawing room.

That's all right.

I like traveling on the Pullmans.
