Next Time We Love is a 1936 melodrama film directed by Edward H. Griffith and starring Margaret Sullavan, James Stewart and Ray Milland. It was written by Melville Baker with Preston Sturges and Doris Anderson, who were both uncredited, based on Ursula Parrott's 1935 novel Next Time We Live, which was serialized before publication as Say Goodbye Again. The film is also known as Next Time We Live in the U.K.



Aspiring actress Cicely Tyler (Margaret Sullavan) marries ambitious newsman Christopher Tyler (James Stewart) but their life together is interrupted when he is assigned to a good position in his newspaper's Rome bureau, and she stays behind, confiding to her rich secret admirer, Tommy Abbott (Ray Milland), that she is pregnant. Separations, reunions and reconciliations follow as Cicely and Christopher struggle to balance their romance and their careers.[1][2][3]


Cast notes:


Ursula Parrott was a popular novelist of the time, several of whose novels were turned into films, most prominently Ex-Wife which became the 1930 movie The Divorcee. The story which provided the source material for Next Time We Love was first serialized as Say Goodbye Again in McCall's from December 1934 to April 1935, and was then published as a novel called Next Time We Live, which was also the working title of the film. There was debate about what to call the movie, with studio executives worrying that "Next Time We Live" might be misinterpreted to be about reincarnation, while director Edward H. Griffith didn't want to lose the publicity value of using the title of the novel. Although the film was released as Next Time We Love, the alternate title Next Time We Live was used for its release in the U.K.[4]

Francis Lederer was originally cast for the part of "Christopher Tyler", but was unavailable. Margaret Sullavan was responsible for getting her friend Jimmy Stewart borrowed from MGM for the part.[2] Production on the film was delayed because Sullavan was shooting retakes for So Red the Rose,[4] but it began on 21 October 1935 and continued through 30 December.[1] Shooting began with only half the script written by Melville Baker, so three weeks into production, the studio put Doris Anderson on the project as well. Some scenes in the film were directed in San Francisco by assistant director Ralph Slosser using doubles, and Slosser also directed some studio scenes as well.[4]

Next Time We Love was released at the end of January 1936.
