User Reviews

Great enthusiasm for a 66-year old film.
10 June 1999 | by (Scarsdale, New York) – See all my reviews

"Berkeley Square" is similar in theme to Jack Finney's "Time and Again." A present day American is transported back to the home of his ancestors in London, during the American Revolution. He knows, of course, what will hap- pen and even falls in love with one of his female ancestors. An old film but a terrific one, with Leslie Howard and Heather Angel.
