14-year old Susan Shawson travels back in time in her building's elevator.

There she meets Victoria Walker, a girl her own age in need of assistance with her own family problems. Gradually discovering the power of her time machine, Susan, Victoria, and her young brother Robert travel back and forth in time and succeed in changing both the past and the future.

Borrows slightly from a wonderful novel
20 March 2000 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Anyone who loved the two classic novels by Edward Ormondroyd will be disappointed in this film. All the magic and romance have been modernized out of his original story of a girl who does a good deed for a mysterious old lady, and given "three" in return. Three what? Not three wishes, but three rides into the 1800's on a rickety elevator...

The first novel is Time at the Top. The second is All in Good Time.
