Quotes

Realtor: Yeah, thank goodness symbols like this are preserved, else we wouldn't have anything else to remember the past by. My grandfather lived through those days, saw the new century come in, that's when folks began to realize that what they'd lived through was gone. Gone forever and no going back.

Impressive and enchanting time travel love story from the world of the supernatural.
28 April 2004 | by grafspeeSee all my reviews

I notice that many previous reviewers have been trying to obtain a copy of this film after viewing same. I can really understand why because it's impact is romantically haunting. When I saw it advertised for screening in the 1980's I preset a video to record it while I was out shopping. Unfortunately due to insufficient tape I missed the ending and it was two years later when I managed to obtain a copy from a local video store to complete my experience of a tale which I found absolutely fascinating. Lindsay Wagner is magnificent and well suited in the role of the gentle loving romantic Jenny Logan along with her less enamored happy go lucky husband Michael played by Marc Singer. When they buy an old house once owned by an unknown artist she finds a doorway to the world of the past by wearing an old dress discovered in the attic. This leads her to a romance with the artist as she travels to a time in pre-turn of the century 1900. The great appeal of this film is the transition from the uncaring hustle and bustle of the present to the gracious principled and courteous past marking the distinctly different attitudes of the people of these respective eras. The story right to the ending is a well laid out plot with the respective events giving a totally believable twist to the fate and fortune of Jenny Logan. This is a film which you can watch over and over, never find boring, and then become caught up being addicted with the fantasy of being one of the principal characters in this unforgettable tale. A great tear jerker for the ladies.
