Did You Know?


The movie is based on the 1977 David Williams' novel "Second Sight". In the novel, Jennie merely finds a drawing of the white Victorian dress and has a replica made, whereas in the film she finds an actual white Victorian dress in the attic. In both cases, the replica dress in the novel, and the dress found in the attic in the film, both work as the catalyst transporting her back in time. See more »


When Jennie is told to take off her wet dress, it was obviously dry. See more »

I finally found it!
13 October 2001 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I have loved this movie since the very first time I saw it in the 1980's. I was thrilled when I found it written up here on the IMDb. I have recently acquired a copy of the VHS version of this movie in an auction on eBay! The tape I purchased is an old previous video rental, but it's in excellent condition and I was so happy to be able to watch the movie again! It's still as good as I remember it.

I just wanted all you die-hard fans of this movie to know that it *IS* possible to get a copy of it if you really want it....
