Somewhere In Time (1980)

Young writer Richard Collier is met on the opening night of his first play by an old lady who begs him to \"Come back to me\". Mystified, he tries to find out about her, and learns that she is a famous stage actress from the early 1900s, Elise McKenna. Becoming more and more obsessed with her, he manages, by self hypnosis, to travel back in time where he meets her. They fall in love, a matching that is not appreciated by her manager. Can their love outlast the immense problems caused by their \"time\" difference? And can Richard remain in a time that is not his?

There are those few movies that make you sit back and just be amazed at the artistic excellence you\'ve just seen. Citizen Kane, Casablanca, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, The Godfather, Ben Hur, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy are a few of these. Somewhere In Time is not a blockbuster actioner, but is perhaps the finest fantasy love story ever made.

The cast is perfect. Christopher Reeve is extremely believable. Jane Seymour is gorgeous as the young actress, as is Teresa Wright as her older self. Christopher Plummer is great as Elise McKenna\'s manager, and Bill Erwin affords himself fine as Arthur. The setting, music, story, and acting are all top notch! We are slowly drawn (and it\'s just great to take one\'s time to get involved) into this mysterious romance as the paradox pair of the watch and the time travel gets our hero to \"come back to me.\"

Simply Superb! If you are one of the very few who has not seen this movie, please get it and watch it one time. I\'ve seen it at least 10 times and enjoy it as much each time.

........................................................................................................................................

Christopher Reeve takes on the role of (Richard Collier) a successful Chicago playwright who is approached (in May 1972) by a very old woman (Susan French) who will alter the course of his life eternally...

The thoughtful old lady presses a classic pocket watch, from a past existence, into his right hand and intensely whispers four haunting words \'Come back to me,\' which will affect him forever...

Eight years have passed and Richard is seeing his work incredibly sterile, gently afflicted with a case of lesser inspiration... So he packs his luggage and heads out to an island of enchanting beauty, to the Grand Hotel on the Straits of Mackinac waterfront...

While waiting for the huge dining hall to open, he tours the grand old building\'s museum, and sees a portrait of a lovely woman... He becomes obsessed about finding the truth behind the old photograph and begins questioning the people that knew her past... What emerges is a wonderful woman who is the first American stage actress in 1912 to create a mystique in the public\'s eye... She is the same lady who visited him that night at the premier of one of his plays...

Richard finds himself intrigued... There is so much to hear... People who knew Elise McKenna when she was young said that she was quick and bright and full of fun... Strong, willful, not at all the way she was later...

Seeking help from an old philosophy teacher who had written a book about \'Travels through time,\' Richard attempts to disassociate himself entirely from the present, move everything out of sight that could possibly remind him of it, hypnotize his mind, and transport himself backward into the past, into June 27, 1912, into the life of the stunningly beautiful and talented Elise McKenna (Jane Seymour).

Nominated for Best Costume Design, the motion picture is a romantic fantasy that avoids any use of machinery in action... The time travel theory is completely non-scientific... The film captures the idea of a fine young man moving back among other time periods, and affirms that love is an undeniable force which goes beyond us, a force with no limit to the spiritual power, with no end to the potential of spiritual expansion...

This film has often been criticized for poor acting and a lack of realistic plot, but I think it is simply breathtaking. I think that this is the best romantic film of all time because it concentrates primarily on love. For example, Titanic is a great love story but the whole fact behind the ship sinking steals the show. Or for example, in Casablanca where their is great romance between Bogurt and Bergman, World War II is going on in the background, which fades the romance. Somewhere in Time is a film where you just have to simply put your criticism aside, and view. The first time I ever saw this film, I liked it. The more I viewed it, I loved it. This film has the ability to make anybody cry if they really have a heart. The thing that makes this film so romantic is it\'s innocence. No huge plots going on, but simply a man loving a woman.

I have to say though, that Christopher Reeve was rather poor in certain scenes where he would commonly ask or answer questions directly after they had been said. But that is just a minor film error that a lot of people would tend not to even notice. I really enjoyed Jane Seymour in this film for her charasmatic acting, and her amazing beauty. The scene when Richard sees Elise for the first time in person by the lake, will give you heartfelt chills. They both make such a great on-screen duo together, but Christopher Plummer is by far the greatest actor in this film, and one of the greatest of all time. He has the ability to play so many different characters and still acts on broadway. In this film, Plummer plays the snobbish William Robertson who does everything to get in the way of Richard and Elise\'s relationship. Robertson is Elise\'s manager and is jealous of her and Richard\'s relationship, wanting to settle down with Elise himself. This movie does have it\'s funny moments to, like when Richard is trying just to get out of the room he awoke in, in 1912. Or when in 1912, he is signing the hotel registeration book very hesitantly, hoping everything goes as planned. One more thing that I would like to add is the two running men, who appear twice throughout the film running,stopping,boxing a little and then running, which I find hilarious.(keep your eye out for that.)

Well all joking aside, this film is a timeless romantic classic, that focuses on the most important thing in life, which is \"love\". It is so romantic how a man risks his modern day life to go back in time and find what he thinks to be,his \"one.\" This movie teaches you that you should never take love for granted. I think that love is so beautiful and special that it is worth dying for. I guarantee you, that you\'re tears will get the better of you in the scene where they reunite outside of the Grand Hotel, after they thought they had lost each other. Unfortunately their relationship on earth is cut short to a tragic ending that will make you cry. After Richard is brought back to modern day, he is mentally dead inside. It is so tragic how he looks at the very spots where they once had been at the hotel. The John Barry score sums up the moments beautifully, and is the most romantic and beautiful music in my opinion, to ever grace cinematography. Believe me, this theme song is enough to make you cry.

It is so amazing how all the little parts of the movie come together like pieces of a puzzle, and how Richard and Elise die the exact same way. I always love happy endings, and the ending of this movie will leave you satisfied. If you are a romantic like your\'s truly, then this movie could change your life on the perspective of the importance of love. I highly recommend this beautiful romantic, to anybody that really has a heart, and that can appreciate this kind of film. 7/10 (on film perspective) But just perfect for a romantic.

* Automobiles are not allowed on Mackinac Island, Michigan, location of the Grand Hotel and site of much of the movie. The use of cars for the movie required special permission from the town. Although cars were allowed for filming, the cast and crew weren\'t allowed to drive them outside of actual filming for the movie.

* The professor in the movie is named \"Finney.\" Richard Matheson gave this character the name in tribute to Jack Finney, the science fiction writer. It is controversially said that Matheson stole or borrowed his idea for \"Bid Time Return\" (the book that the movie was based on pub. 1975) from Finney\'s book \"Time and Again\" which was published in 1970.

* Cameo: [Richard Matheson] The author and screenwriter is the man Collier runs into as he is leaving the bathroom after shaving.

* The gazebo built and used in the film now sits next to Fort Mackinac high on a bluff overlooking Marquette Park, on Mackinac Island. It used to reside on the Governor\'s Estate, but was moved to its new location in the winter of 2006.

* While Christopher Reeve was filming this movie, the local theater decided to show his latest hit \"Superman\". Many of the \"Somewhere\" cast joined the locals for the event. Early into the screening the sound went out. Reeve, who was seated next to Jane Seymour, stood up in the audience and delivered all the lines.

* The moment when Richard first sees the portrait of Elise in the film was also the first time Christopher Reeve had seen the picture. The hope was to get a genuine reaction from him, so the portrait was kept under cover until the moment Richard turns and sees it.

* This is William H. Macy\'s first film.

* There were problems with the original footage of Elise performing on stage, so the scenes of her had to be re-shot. The second time around, Jane Seymour delivered the speech to the author and screenwriter Richard Matheson instead of Christopher Reeve. Matheson was supposedly so moved and upset by the experience, he had to call his wife and return home immediately.

* Jeannot Szwarc ran into a small problem directing both Christopher Reeve and Christopher Plummer in the same scene. When he said, \"Chris,\" both men replied, \"Yes?\" He said that this would never do, so he consulted with producer Stephen Deutsch, and together they decided that from now on, Christopher Plummer would be known as \"Mr. Plummer\", and Christopher Reeve would be known as \"Bigfoot\".

* The actresses who auditioned for the role of Elise were all asked if they had ever been in love before. Jane Seymour was the only actress who answered no.

* Jane Seymour suggested composer John Barry to director Jeannot Szwarc as a candidate to compose the score for ‘Somewhere In Time’, but Szwarc balked at the idea, saying that because of their tight budget, they couldn\'t even afford to ask him. But Jane said that Barry was a friend of hers and that she would ask him. She told Barry about the project, he loved it and agreed to do it.

* Movie was based on author\'s dream about meeting renowned stage actress Maude Adams. He never met her in real life, only saw her portrait in Piper\'s Opera House and fantasized what it would be like to go back in time and meet her; hence the character Richard has the same first name as the author.

* George Wendt\'s film debut.
