Storyline

An American physicist, Peter Standish, lives in London in an inherited flat on Berkeley Square, unchanged from its 18th century appearance. He's researched his ancestors and the flat, and he believes somehow he will travel through time, if only briefly, to 1784. A lightning strike transports him, and he finds things disturbingly different than he expected: disease and social conditions appall him, and, in this Age of Reason, his speech, manners, and knowledge frighten rather than interest all except one young woman, Helen, the sister of the woman he's to marry. He sets up a laboratory in the hopes of hastening progress, and he tells her his secret. Does love or Bedlam await? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

At about 1:05:30 into the DVD (Tyrone Power Matinee Idol Collection, Disk 5), Peter Standish says to Helen "When I kissed Kate ..." -- but he hasn't yet kissed Kate in the movie. In fact, his relationship with Kate has been rather frosty, except for their opening meeting -- and even then they did not kiss. So he has has nothing to explain to Helen. Perhaps there was originally a scene where Peter and Kate kissed to solidify their engagement, and that scene was cut from the final film. In any case, the absence of any such scene creates an apparent continuity blunder. See more »

Quotes

Helen Pettigrew: You have no reason to be afraid of him.

Mostly, I remember the very touching ending.
22 July 2004 | by (Alabama, USA) – See all my reviews

Like many I haven't seen this movie in years, but it gave me a lasting impression. Thing I remembered the most is when the gal in the past (Ann Blyth) knew that Tyrone was going back to the future (where have I heard that phrase before?) she told him that she would have the letters in her tombstone cut deep so that he could read them in the future. When he returned to the future (his present) he went to the cemetery and found her tombstone, old and fading, but still marked as she had promised. Touching, and sad. Then later, lo and behold, the spitting image of her appears in his present and he has a chance to "renew" his love. Great movie, in the great old black and white format. You could categorize it as the forerunner of Somewhere in Time, with Jane Seymour appearing as possibly the loveliest woman in film.
