On New Year's Eve 1946, Sheila Page kills her husband Barney. She wishes that she could relive 1946 and avoid the mistakes that she made throughout the year. Her wish comes true but cheating fate proves more difficult than she anticipated.
Sheila kills her husband at the start of the film with a smoking gun. We don't know how or why. All we know is men are banging on her door and she escapes. There is a notable dialogue as she makes her way to a New Years celebration with Richard Basehart as the poet William Williams. As she goes up the stairs to John Friday's apartment (her producer), she wishes she could relive the year and undo what she has done. William Williams, in an offhand remark, states he wishes he was the one who shot Barney, her erstwhile husband. We see that Destiny is not too happy with making changes to her plans.Written by
i never forgot this movie i saw on a rainy sunday 20 years ago.
the problem is, i cant locate a copy of this movie. i have looked for literally years, ever since vcrs became popular, and it is nowhere to be found. for some reason i remember the plot of a woman getting to relive the past year with incredible fondness. it was indeed a delightful movie, and i would so much love to see it again.
