Young writer Richard Collier is met on the opening night of his first play by an old lady who begs him to "Come back to me". Mystified, he tries to find out about her, and learns that she is a famous stage actress from the early 1900s, Elise McKenna. Becoming more and more obsessed with her, he manages, by self hypnosis, to travel back in time where he meets her. They fall in love, a matching that is not appreciated by her manager. Can their love outlast the immense problems caused by their "time" difference? And can Richard remain in a time that is not his?Written by
According to producer Stephen Deutsch, Christopher Reeve's agent literally laughed in his face when he was told the salary his client would be offered for the role ( in what would be his first role after his star-making performance in the smash hit Superman (1978)). He refused to read the script or allow Reeve to hear about it. Knowing he could not proceed without a star, Deutsch clandestinely slipped Reeve the script in his hotel room. Reeve called the next day and said he loved the script and would accept the part. Reeve told Deutsch that another reason why he accepted was that the other project he was being offered at the time was a viking movie. See more »
The flags outside the grand hotel show 50 stars/states, but there were only 48 states in 1912. Alaska and Hawaii didn't become states until 1959. See more »

I got some news. There was an agent in the house tonight, and he said he thinks this play might be good enough for Broadway.

Fingers crossed, who knows? Come on, let's all have some cake.

Video version has some parts of the soundtrack changed, due to copyright problems: the original "Theme from Somewhere In Time," performed by pianist Roger Williams over the end titles, is replaced by other music in the videocassette and DVD versions. It's intact in the laserdisc release. See more »
One day i was going through my friend's movies and i was picking some of the really good ones to watch. His wife grabbed somewhere in time and told me that it was good. I was very unsure about the movie but i watched it anyways. By the end of the movie i was in awe. The acting is excellent. The story was creative. The dialogue was extravagant. The music was fantastic. The cinematography was terrific. This movie was awesome. Yes it is a romance movie for all you people who hate romance movies but if you have to watchan origina and entertaining love story then i recomend this one. Tust me guys it not your typical love story!
