Somewhere In Time


What if you could time travel?

And if you could, what time period (past or future) would you travel to?

I ask these questions because this past weekend, I purchased and watched one of my all-time favorite romantic films, Somewhere In Time, and remembered why I love this story so much.

The magic lies within its simplicity and innocence yet, it is very powerful.

I can truthfully say that this movie is a TWO Kleenex box tear-generating piece of celluloid.

Oy vey…I cry EVERY time I watch it. But it’s a good cry.

Initially I saw this cult-classic back in the late 80’s with a close friend of mine at the time, and even he, who was always a very much in-control-of-his-emotions type of guy, CRIED.

Before I share a bit about the story, I have to tell you that this movie almost didn’t get made because Hollywood didn’t think the general public would identify with the subject matter, nor did they promote it with as much gusto as they did other films at the time. Somewhere In Time was made on a very low budget, and its stellar costars consented to do this project not for any kind of tremendous monetary compensation, but because the script touched them so deeply, they did it out of love.

Everyone in the cast and crew created this movie from a strong passion to produce it. And you can feel that passion when you watch it, because it shines through.

It is deemed, "The Most Romantic Love Story Ever Filmed."

One of my favorite things about this movie is the music. The breathtaking score adds so much to the emotion of this tender love story. The theme becomes embedded in your soul.

If you haven’t seen Somewhere In Time, it’s about playwright Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve), who in 1972 meets an elderly woman during the opening night of one of his plays, who mysteriously walks up to him and places a pocket watch into his hand and pleads, “come back to me.” Richard doesn’t know who the woman is.


Eight years later, Richard takes a break from writing and travels out of town to the Grand Hotel for some R&R. While looking at a display in the hotel's museum, he becomes enthralled by a photograph of a beautiful woman, Elise McKenna (Jane Seymour), who was a famous early 20th century stage actress. Upon digging deeper, Richard learns that she was the elderly woman who gave him the pocket watch eight years earlier, but subsequently died later that same evening.


Traveling to McKenna's home, Richard discovers a music box she had made, in the shape of the Grand Hotel that plays his favorite melody. He also discovers among her effects a book on time travel written by his old college professor, and learns that McKenna read the book several times. Richard becomes obsessed with the idea of traveling back to 1912 and meeting Elise McKenna, with whom he has fallen in love.


Without giving the detailed ending away, Richard and Elise do meet and rekindle the love they once shared from another time, but cannot stay with each other until they are joined in the hereafter.

The conclusion is so stunningly touching that your heart will melt, because you see that love is the one true thing...that is timeless.

I leave you with a short teaser clip…

    I've never heard of this film but I just know from your description I would L.O.V.E. it! If I could travel back in time I would go back to the time of Henry VIII - a period of history that has always fascinated me.

  3. Sold! Yes, Ron, you sold this film to me. I have to see it now, don't I? Like you, I know I will cry because I feel the tears there already. I have a few DVDs on the shelf, all of them make me weep. Did you ever see The Notebook? OMG that one brings the tears faster than anything. Thank you for sharing. Off now to do a search on Amazon. Have a great day.

  4. Hi Ronnie,

    How are you, sweetie? Count me in as another "non-initiatee" to Somewhere in time. It looks beautiful. It does look like a tearjerker but I also enjoy an occasional good cry from a film/show.

    Time travel... The suject that each genealogist(that's me) would abord in a wink of an eye. I would love to travel to the past, more exactly to my family's past. To kind of raid the thrift stores and make Victoian dresses to go back to the 19th century and see my great-great grandparents in Central PA(they were miners) and maybe my Philadelphian great-grandparents in Philly.
    How I would relish that!! But, provided that I could return to my time because I don't think that the idea is being stuck there for good.

    And if I could permit, where in time would Ronnie go??

  5. coool. of course, i've never heard of this movie, but i'll be looking it up on netflix in a few minutes. from what you've written, it sounds good. i do hate movie crying, i get enough crying done on my own and when i watch commercials, but it sounds worth it. i'll need a box of advil and tissues, i suppose.

    thanks for sharing this movie.

  6. I remember enjoying that movie, Ron! I love time travel books. My favorite is the Outlander series about a British woman who travels back to the 1700's and practices medicine during the Revolutionary War. She marries a new husband and has a daughter, but winds up having to revisit the present. It's fascinating!

  7. This is one of Ron's absolute FAVORITE movies!! We had it on dvd awhile ago but I'm not sure if he gave it to his parents to watch or we still have it? I do remember that it was a very lovely, touching movie.
    As for which time period I would travel to ... hmmm... maybe Tudor England? Or to Italy during the Renaissance? OR Italy NOW! LOL

    Have a wonderful week!

    A TWO Kleenex box tear-generating piece of celluloid! Thanks for the warning, Ron. I just started blubbering at the trailer, so I think I better pick up THREE boxes before I watch this film. I remember when it came out and it's strange to see Christopher Reeve so young and healthy.

    According to IBDM.com, this movie was a HUGE hit in Asia. "It one of the highest-grossing films in China, and played in Hong Kong for eighteen months. Also, the producer admitted he made a big mistake by allowing the film to be released wide on opening day (as opposed to opening in limited markets and gradually expanding to further theaters). Also, the Screen Actor's Guild was on strike at the time, leaving the film without the promotion of its stars."

    Thanks so much for bringing this movie to me attention, Ron. I'll make sure to pick it up. Take care and have a great week, buddy!

    "I've never heard of this film but I just know from your description I would L.O.V.E. it! "

    I truly think you would. It's the epitome of ROMANCE!

    Both Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve are lovely in it. So is Christopher Plummer!

    "If I could travel back in time I would go back to the time of Henry VIII - a period of history that has always fascinated me."

    Ooooo...I LOVE that time period too!

    "Did you ever see The Notebook? OMG that one brings the tears faster than anything."

    OMG....I agree! I've seen that movie TWICE and cried both times. The ending is soooooooooooooo beautiful!

  13. Bonjour Barb~

    I'm doing great, my friend, hope you are too. It's taking me this whole week to get back into the swing of things since my two week vacation.

    " It does look like a tearjerker but I also enjoy an occasional good cry from a film/show."

    Me too, so I think you would LOVE this movie. It's such a beautiful story!

    "Time travel... The suject that each genealogist(that's me) would abord in a wink of an eye. I would love to travel to the past, more exactly to my family's past."

    OMG, that's right...being a genealogist I bet you would adore time travel!!!! And speaking of "family's past" I too would enjoy traveling back to Italy; revisiting my cultural roots.

    If I could travel back in time, I would love to visit two different time periods...one, would be to the early Roman days. And two, would be to the 30's and 40's. I LOVE those time periods!

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, my friend. Have a spectacular week!

    Yes, it is a good move, and you probably will cry, but it's a GOOD cry because the story is so beautiful and touching.

    I just purchased the "Collectors Edition" of the film and it had a lot of EXTRA documentary stuff on the DVD.

  17. Hey there Mary~

    Yaaaaaaaaay....please tell Ron that he has EXCELLENT taste!

    I just got the "Collectors Edition" at FYE (on sale) a few days ago, which contains a lot of DVD extras. It was only $5.99!!!

    "As for which time period I would travel to ... hmmm... maybe Tudor England? Or to Italy during the Renaissance? OR Italy NOW! LOL"

    YES!!!! Italy...then or NOW. LOL.

    If I were to travel back in time it would be during the Roman Empire. I LOVE that time period. I think in a past life I was a
    courtesan - HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Another time period I would travel to would be the 30's and 40's.

    "Thanks for the warning, Ron. I just started blubbering at the trailer, so I think I better pick up THREE boxes before I watch this film."

    Bwhahahahahahha! I know, doesn't trailer alone make you cry?

    "I remember when it came out and it's strange to see Christopher Reeve so young and healthy."

    Yes, I agree. And on the DVD I purchased, Christopher Reeve took part in "The Making of Somewhere In Time Documentary" right after he had his accident.

    Thank you soooooooooo much for sharing the link at IMDB, Rob! I just clicked over and read it - I had no idea - VERY interesting stuff!!! This film had so many challenges when it first came out, but it's amazing how it eventually got noticed and has become a cult-classic over the years.

  21. Ron, I got choked up just from reading about this film and watching the clip! It sounds like such a beautiful love story. Both Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves look so exquisite. I'm surprised I haven't heard about this film because I love romantic movies. Yes, I will look for it soon. I may just purchase it, as you did, at FYE. I have one near my home.

    Thank you for sharing this movie. Have a wonderful week, Ron.

  22. Hola Denise~

    "Ron, I got choked up just from reading about this film and watching the clip."

    HA! I searched and searched at You Tube to find the perfect clip for this movie, that wouldn't give too much away. And I when I found this one, I was so happy. It's one of the best clips because it's enticing.

    Yes, don't Jane and Christopher look lovely? They were perfect for this film. Especially Jane, because she looks at though she came out of that time period.

    Yup, if you go to FYE, you will find this film on sale - $5.99! Amazon also has it for the same price if you prefer ordering online.

  25. I would love to time travel, but not forward, I'm afraid. Judging by the changes I've seen in the world, I don't think I want to experience the future.

    I will have to watch out for that film. It sounds just up my street :)

  26. Dianne WilsonJuly 23, 2012

    I love this movie
    I've seen it over a dozen times which is especially telling since I never thought Reeves or Seymour were very good actors but they were brilliant in this

    I would like to travel back to the roaring 20s
    and I'd like to travel back to Russia in the early 1900s to meet Nana as a girl :)

    Hope sends hugs

  27. ...Oh my goodness, such a thorough and eloquently spoken review dear Ron! I will definitely be looking this one up, this sounds right up my alley. :o)

    ...I know this sounds so cheesy but if I could travel back in time I would travel back to the mid to late 1960's. Why you ask? To go back to my childhood and see and be with my Mom again. A long time ago I always wanted to go back to the mid 1800's, for some reason my soul feels connected to that time period. Weird, yes? :o)

    ...I hope all is well with you & your family. I also hope you're surviving this heat okay too. It's horrible here, we're heading into our second round of triple digit temps and we haven't had rain since before Memorial Day. Even our old trees are starting to show signs of stress. It's just sad. :o\

    ...Take care my friend, stay cool and hydrated too! :o)

    Ditto! I've never had the desire to see or know the future. And mainly for the reason YOU mentioned, and partly because I want to LIVE the future....and not know anything ahead of time.

    I think you would truly adore this film. Jane Seymour is so beautiful in this film. She has an 'ethereal' quality about her.

    Thanks for stopping by, Babs! Have a wonderful weekend!

  29. Hey there Lady Dianne~

    Oh, I had a feeling you had seen this movie!!!! Isn't it lovely? Soooooooooo romantic!

    I think Reeves and Seymour just GLOWED in this film, you're right!

    Watching this movie again made me my heart ache, seeing Reeve so young and alive. In the documentary that was included within this collectors edition, Reeves spoke about an out-of-body experience he had (right after his accident) that was very similar to the one he had in the movie.

    "I would like to travel back to the roaring 20s
    and I'd like to travel back to Russia in the early 1900s to meet Nana as a girl."

    Oh, how COOL!!!! I've always had an affinity for Russian history.

    (((( You )))))

    And yes, I have a feeling this film would be right up your alley because it's such a tender, sweet, and loving story.

    And no, I don't think that sounds cheesy at all. How wonderful it would be if you could go back to the 60's and see and be with your mother again.

    "A long time ago I always wanted to go back to the mid 1800's, for some reason my soul feels connected to that time period. Weird, yes? :o)"

    No, not weird because my wish would be to go back the Roman Empire days. For some reason I feel as though I lived back then in one of my past lives. I feel so connected to that period. Also, I feel connected to the 1930's and 40's.

    Yes, I had glorious time visiting my family again. We all had a blast!

    The weather here this summer has been VERY strange. One week it'll be in the 100's, then the next week (like last week) it dropped back down into the 70's?!?! When I was in Florida, it was actually cooler there, than here.

    Thanks sooooooooo much for stopping by and saying Hi, dear friend. You made my WEEK! Hope all is going well, and I look forward to your posts!

  31. Gosh......the trailer, compounded by your description, had me teary eyed. Me.....the one who hates crying and throwing up--not necessarily in that order.....

    I'm thinking I saw this one eons ago, but that was eons ago. And since himself is the only soul who knows how to run the darn DVD player in this house and the only one who can sit for 90 minutes in one place.....he rules the television. LOL Lucky him. But! BUT!! I'm sure with the offer of popcorn (and strategically placed kleenex) he'll be all for it!

    I've never seen this movie, but after reading this post I'll definitely be picking it up if I ever see it on the store shelves! Sounds like the perfect movie for the wife, and being a fan of CR I certainly wouldn't mind watching it.

    And speaking of Christopher Reeve, my favorite movie of his (besides Superman 2 (the Richard Donner cut)) is Deathtrap, which also stars Michael Caine. It's an awesomely twisted movie that I'm sure you'd enjoy. Seriously, check it out if you get a chance.

  35. Never heard of it, but I find time travel to be a fascinating topic - after all, I'm a big fan of both Lost and Fringe. Plus, let's not forget how Mr. Reeve created a bit of time travel himself in the original Superman movie when he made the earth spin backwards in order to save Lois Lane's life. All that being said, I'll have to check out this film!

  36. I've never heard of this movie but it sounds like one i would enjoy! It also sounds quite similar to The Time Traveller's Wife, which is also a tear-jerker. I might try to find it, even though I have a stack of as-yet unwatched movies to get through.

    I do love hearing about movies being made (and becoming cult movies) which the moguls didn't believe in, or else wouldn't make because they didn't think they'd be profitable. It's a very, very sad thing when art becomes ALL about money.

    This used to be one of my favorite movies. I loved it. I would also cry every time I watched it. It was one of my I-Need-To-Cry-I'm-Gonna-Watch-This-Movie movies. But ... after Christopher had his accident, I could never watch it (nor any of the Superman movies) again. I threw out the VHS copy and the DVD I was given is still in it's original wrapper. To be honest, I had to skim you post because I couldn't bear to look at the pictures. My heart broke for him and his family and I couldn't separate the two Christopher Reeves.

    Now when I need to cry, it's my old standby - An Affair to Remember or Steel Magnolias.

    Jeez, I'm just on some kind of stream of consciousness roll here giving you more information than you ever wanted to know! I'd better go to bed, obviously the Tylenol PM has kicked in.

    "But ... after Christopher had his accident, I could never watch it (nor any of the Superman movies) again.

    My heart broke for him and his family and I couldn't separate the two Christopher Reeves."

    I sincerely know how you feel, dear lady, truly I do. It's very hard to watch this film and see Christopher Reeve so alive, both in this movie and Superman. When I purchased this copy of Somewhere In Time, it came with a DVD extra of Christopher (after his accident) and Jane talking about what it was like to make this film, and it broke my heart.

    But I have to say, his courage, fortitude and grace that propelled him forward after his accident was so inspiring.

    "Now when I need to cry, it's my old standby - An Affair to Remember or Steel Magnolias."

    YES! I love both of those films too! And talk about tear-jerkers!

    Hey Ron, Sounds like a must see, the story line works for me, time travel I think about at times, simple things like going back for a do over but if we could do this then we wouldn't be the people we are today.

    It would be cool to go back to a different era for a look around to understand things we can't comprehend, or just to see how relaxing simpler times actually were.

    I could do a post on this subject...see what you started :^)

  48. I've nee seen Somewhere In Time, and now I HAVE to! Thanks for the reccomendation. I'm actually in the mood for a TWO Kleenex Box Of Tissues kinda movie.


    "One of my favorite things about this movie is the music. The breathtaking score adds so much to the emotion of this tender love story."

    Hmmm… that's how I feel about the movie "The Mission" with Robert De Niro.

  49. Hey there Jimmy~

    FAB to see ya!!!

    "...time travel I think about at times, simple things like going back for a do over but if we could do this then we wouldn't be the people we are today."

    Great point, and I agree....we wouldn't be the people we are today or wouldn't have the knowledge we have.

    "I could do a post on this subject...see what you started :^)"

    Yes, I think you would love this film/topic because of your interest in genealogy. Perhaps you could go back the 'civil war period" and then do a post about it. Wouldn't that be cool?

    Thanks so much for stopping by, buddy. So glad to see ya back blogging again!

    Have a super week!

    X to you and Cindy!

  50. Hey there Meleah~

    "Hmmm… that's how I feel about the movie "The Mission" with Robert De Niro."

    OH. MY. GOD.!!!! I can't believe you mentioned "The Mission" because that is one of my ALL-TIME favorite movies too! And I don't know many people who even KNOW that film! Isn't it a deep and moving film? Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons are AWESOME! That's another movie who's soundtrack makes me cry because it's so beautiful. In fact, I think I have an old copy of the music on TAPE.

    If you liked "The Mission" I think you would really enjoy "Somewhere In Time" because you know how us LIBRAS are when it comes to romantic movies!

    Thanks for stopping by, girl!

    XOXO

  53. oh ron, how could i have forgotten this beautiful love story and yes it is a costco batch of 22 boxes...but it's so wonderfully done...and there is, for me, the additional pathos of C. Reeves and his eventual fight for survival and untimely death followed soon after by his loving wife... almost another love story waiting to be made.

    anyway thanks for reminding me of this movie. i am putting on my netflix again! xoxo

  54. Good morning Linda~

    Isn't this a move such a beautiful love story?

    "C. Reeves and his eventual fight for survival and untimely death followed soon after by his loving wife... almost another love story waiting to be made."

    It's incredible how this film almost ran parallel with Christopher Reeve's life. Like in the movie, their love (Reeve and his wife) was so powerful, that they both died within short period of each other; reuniting in the hereafter.

    You're so right...almost another love story waiting to made!

    Thank you for stopping by, dear friend. Hope you're enjoying a wonderful week!

  55. Ron, I LOVE Somewhere In Time! And I cry every time I watch it! Jane and Christopher’s chemistry is flawless--you feel their love oozing from the screen! Truly talented actress and actor and I'm saddened Christopher is no longer with us.

    "What if you could time travel?

    And if you could, what time period (past or future) would you travel to?"

    I would like to go back to the Wild West, around the mid to late 1800's— definitely after the civil war, when our country was at peace. I’m drawn to that Era because men could make deals with just a handshake or duke it out in a saloon and when it was over, go buy each other a beer. It was a difficult time because there weren’t modern conveniences but people were so darn honorable. To me, the West represents the ultimate fairy tale with the “good” guy besting the “bad” guy and then winning his lady love and living happily ever after.

    Thanks for the background on Somewhere In Time, I didn’t know those little tidbits about the film. You are so great with facts on movies and music. I love that!

    ((YOU))

    Hellooooooooooo Pam!!!!

    FAB to see ya, my friend!

    Isn't this film the epitome of ROMANCE?

    "Jane and Christopher’s chemistry is flawless--you feel their love oozing from the screen!"

    I couldn't agree with you more, their onscreen chemistry was MAGICAL! In the DVD extras, they interviewed the director and he said that when the two of them read for the parts, he knew they were perfect because from their awesome chemistry, just from the audition!

    I LOVED what you shared about your desire to travel back to the Wild West!

    "....when our country was at peace. I’m drawn to that Era because men could make deals with just a handshake or duke it out in a saloon and when it was over, go buy each other a beer."

    You said it! And things were MUCH simpler than.

    "To me, the West represents the ultimate fairy tale with the “good” guy besting the “bad” guy and then winning his lady love and living happily ever after."

    Aw...I LOVE that!

    Thanks sooooooo much for stopping by, Pam. Hope all is going well. I sent you a bunch of 'good energy' yesterday, I hope you felt it!

    (((((( You ))))))

    X ya!

  57. My advice would be to read the book OR watch the movie. Or maybe watch the movie and then read the book .. but those who've read the book and then watch the movie are usually disappointed and hate it.

    The book is by Audrey Nieffeneger. Or something. I never can spell that!

  58. " .. but those who've read the book and then watch the movie are usually disappointed and hate it."

    I agree, Jay! There have only been a few times when I've read a book and it matched the movie, but it was rare.

    I did google the book you mentioned, so I will look for it the next time I'm in Barnes & Noble.

    Thanks again for the recommendation because it's sounds like an awesome topic!
