I'm having a peculiar evening. I got in a mood, and so I watched this for the first time in many years. That probably didn't help my mood, but, oh, well. ...

So beautiful, so beautiful.

Fun Fact: George Wendt was in the cast as a "Student"--I presume in the scene where Richard is celebrating the opening of his play, where the elderly Elise McKenna gives him the pocket watch.

Thanks for bumping this thread, Jeff.  I went back to try to fix some of the broken links and such.

Also:  William H. Macy is listed as "critic".  And Tim Kazurinsky is the 1912 photographer.

My pleasure, Paul. It's been way too long since I last saw Somewhere in Time. I can't say how long that DVD sat on my shelf unopened until last night. If it weren't for Mercy Street and Victoria on PBS this evening, I'd probably watch it again tonight!

I really ought to go back and read through this thread, too.

I recognized William H. Macy's name in the credits. Somehow that didn't surprise me as much as George Wendt! Next time I'll have to see if I can spot and recognize him. I don't know that name, Tim Kazurinsky.

On "another forum" I just read an article about a visit Jane Seymour made to Mackinac Island in 2015. I expect you all knew this already, but I just learned they have a plaque on the beach where Elise met Richard. That made me smile.

Sort of a bump, I guess.

I just read that the character of Elise McKenna was based on real-life actress Maude Adams.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maude_Adams

Maybe this has been noted already. I'm just too lazy to search the thread.  ;D

Maude Adams was Lesbian. Elise McKenna decidedly was not.

Not only was Elise based on Maude, but the author stated that he fell in love with a photo of Maude. He then imagined “what if” he could go back in time and meet her.

This was fascinating. Thank you for posting! It's amazing the things I have learned on this forum. I spent so much time during my career simply focused on maximizing my employers' profitability and missed out on so much! I have a lot of catch-up to do.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!
