An American physicist, Peter Standish, lives in London in an inherited flat on Berkeley Square, unchanged from its 18th century appearance. He's researched his ancestors and the flat, and he believes somehow he will travel through time, if only briefly, to 1784. A lightning strike transports him, and he finds things disturbingly different than he expected: disease and social conditions appall him, and, in this Age of Reason, his speech, manners, and knowledge frighten rather than interest all except one young woman, Helen, the sister of the woman he's to marry. He sets up a laboratory in the hopes of hastening progress, and he tells her his secret. Does love or Bedlam await?Written by
The movie was released as "I'll Never Forget You" in America, and as "The House in the Square" in England. See more »
At about 1:05:30 into the DVD (Tyrone Power Matinee Idol Collection, Disk 5), Peter Standish says to Helen "When I kissed Kate ..." -- but he hasn't yet kissed Kate in the movie. In fact, his relationship with Kate has been rather frosty, except for their opening meeting -- and even then they did not kiss. So he has has nothing to explain to Helen. Perhaps there was originally a scene where Peter and Kate kissed to solidify their engagement, and that scene was cut from the final film. In any case, the absence of any such scene creates an apparent continuity blunder. See more »
I saw this movie "I'll Never Forget You", about 20 year ago and it was very entertaining. The story was very fresh ,in the sense that it was not a retread as we are all use to now a days. I would go as far as to say, it's one of the best fantasy / dramas of 20th century film making. Tyrone Power and Ann Blight performances make us believe their characters. The fantasy and drama of this film really comes through. I ,for one, would like to see it re-released on DVD, so young people could get a chance to see it. You know, the violence, we call movie making now days, is not conducive to entertainment or brain power. This movie is entertaining and leaves room for thought.
