Young writer Richard Collier is met on the opening night of his first play by an old lady who begs him to "Come back to me". Mystified, he tries to find out about her, and learns that she is a famous stage actress from the early 1900s, Elise McKenna. Becoming more and more obsessed with her, he manages, by self hypnosis, to travel back in time where he meets her. They fall in love, a matching that is not appreciated by her manager. Can their love outlast the immense problems caused by their "time" difference? And can Richard remain in a time that is not his? Written by
Producer Stephen Deutsch accepted responsibility for the film's box office failure, saying that he made a mistake allowing it to be released wide on opening day (as opposed to opening in limited markets and gradually expanding to further theaters). One of the problems was that the Screen Actor's Guild was on strike at the time, leaving the film without the promotion of its stars. Reportedly, Deutsch cried for a lot of the film's opening weekend. See more »
When Richard kneels down in the hotel lobby to return the ball to the little boy (that in modern time is the bellboy), there are modern day fire sprinkler head covers in the ceiling behind him. See more »

I got some news. There was an agent in the house tonight, and he said he thinks this play might be good enough for Broadway.

One day i was going through my friend's movies and i was picking some of the really good ones to watch. His wife grabbed somewhere in time and told me that it was good. I was very unsure about the movie but i watched it anyways. By the end of the movie i was in awe. The acting is excellent. The story was creative. The dialogue was extravagant. The music was fantastic. The cinematography was terrific. This movie was awesome. Yes it is a romance movie for all you people who hate romance movies but if you have to watchan origina and entertaining love story then i recomend this one. Tust me guys it not your typical love story!
