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 »
It's pure sappy romance - in the best sense of the world. I cried like a baby the first time I saw it - I was in my early teens. I saw it again a few years ago and it's definitely made-for-TV but still a great guilty pleasure.
Would guys like it? Only if he was a true romantic, a fan of Lindsay Wagner, or wanted to in fact BE LW. Anyhow, he probably wouldn't recommend it to a friend. No, I fear this is a film a guy would most likely watch to humor his girlfriend.
If you want a story with a beautiful heroine, a GORGEOUS house in the country, a romantic hero, and a dress to die for, give it a chance.
