Storyline

Unassuming planning engineer David Webb finds himself on the Queen Elizabeth to New York with instructions to negotiate a high-powered loan. His lack of confidence means he is completely out of his depth, at least until he finds his personality changes every day during the hour the ship's clocks stop to make allowance for their westward passage.

Good entertainment yarn !
16 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Worth the viewing just for Kenneth More filmed in glorious Eastmancolor. No worse than other movies of that era, & certainly better than some of the boring & lethargic mega money Hollywood releases nowadays. I think some people who review vintage movies fail to to recognise that sometimes we just want to be entertained, not having to grapple with complicated, multiple & mind numbing plots. On that score, I found the movie a treat to watch & bought the recently released DVD to watch again. I suppose the setting on the Queen Elizabeth liner assumes a historic interest in the movie. The bar scenes were actually filmed in the Veranda Bar Restaurant, the authentic Smiths clock seen in it. No attempt to spend money unnecessarily, unlike Ridley Scotts multi- million dollar sets for Prometheus......added nothing to a boring movie anyway...except hype maybe. Betsy Drakes performance compliments More's lead...more intensity than Charlize Theron in said Prometheus lol ! Akin to More's Genevieve for entertainment value & presence. Go watch it.
