"Somewhere In Time", starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, is one of my all-time favorite tales of love and tragedy. The screenplay was based on a story written by note science fiction author, Richard Mathison.
"Somewhere in Time" is the story of a young writer who sacrifices his life in the present to find happiness in the past, where true love awaits him. Young Richard Collier (Emmy winner Christopher Reeve) is approached by an elderly woman who gives him an antique gold watch and who pleads with him to return in time with her. Years later, Richard Collier is overwhelmed by a photograph of a beautiful young woman (Golden Globe and Emmy winner Jane Seymour). Another picture of this woman in her later years reveals to him that she is the same woman who had given him the gold watch. Collier then becomes obsessed with returning to 1912 and the beautiful young woman who awaits him there.
It is a haunting story that is sure to touch your heart. The musical score, which was written by John Barry, is one of the all time greats. Somewhere in time was released on October 3, 1980.
