enjoyable fantasy

I happen to like this movie very much. It was done in the '80s when beautiful clothes, beautiful people, and big budgets were the rage. The film, a remake of the 1947 "Repeat Performance" is about a woman (Connie Selleca) who gets her New Year's wish and is able to repeat the previous year. This gives her a chance to undo the horror of the previous one that ends with the shooting of her husband. I'm not giving anything away here - the shooting is the first frame.

Well, you know how these things go. Though events take a different route, the dominoes start falling and head toward disaster. The ending, however, is interesting.

The cast is attractive - Selleca, David Dukes, Gene Barry, Dina Merrill, Jere Burns, and Wendy Kilbourne. Joan Leslie, who starred in "Repeat Performance," plays a party guest.

A nice, relaxing watch.
