Did You Know?


Linda Gray (Elizabeth Harrington) played Sue Ellen Ewing in Dallas (1978) while Constance McCashin (Beverly) played Laura Avery Sumner in its spin-off series Knots Landing (1979). Like The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan (1979), both series were produced by CBS. See more »


The climax of the story takes place at a "turn of the century" celebration, which would almost certainly be on Dec. 31, 1899. Yet the movie has people dancing outside at this event, with no coats in apparently summer-like weather. See more »


Dr. Erica Lauren: Listen, Jenny, the dress is the trigger that your subconscious uses to keep you from getting close to Michael.

One of my absolute favorites

I only wish I had taped it on VHS and would love to find it on VHS or DVD. I think this was a film that has been overlooked by many. Time-traveling romance just can't been done enough. If you liked Somewhere in Time or Kate and Leopold you will love this movie, IF you can find a copy of it that is. Heaven forbid they would rerun it on TV, like that will ever happen, right?
