Based upon a book by I.A.R. Wylie that was previously filmed as Young Nowheres, Some Day is a simple romantic tale about love among the working class. In this case, that class is represented by Curley Blake (Esmond Knight) and Emily (a 19-year-old $Margaret Lockwood, later one of Britan's most popular film stars). Curley runs the elevator in an apartment house, while Emily is a cleaning girl, one of whose clients -- Mr. Canley (Henry Mollinson) -- lives in this building. They long to be married, but their pitifully low wages and dim hopes of improving their lots prevent them from tying the knot. Anxious to do something special for Emily, who has been to hospital, Curley decides to prepare a special dinner for her, using the flat of a tenant who is supposed to be away. Unfortunately, that tenant returns, irate at this unauthorized use of his apartment, and he and Curley fight. The elevator operator is charged with illegal entry, and things look black until Canley steps in and sets things right. The story was filmed again in 1937 as That Man's Here Again.
