Editorial Reviews


Sean Connery only appears in the pivotal early scenes of Another Time, Another Place, but in his fourth film the future James Bond was already showing superstar potential. This U.S./British melodrama introduced Connery to American audiences in high style: He plays dashing World War II reporter Mark Trevor, first seen covering the defusing of an unexploded German missile in the British countryside. He's joined there by his journalist lover Sara Scott (Lana Turner), who's yet unaware that Trevor has a loving wife (Glynis Johns) and young son to whom he's still openly devoted. When fate takes a unexpected turn, Sara visits Trevor's Cornish village, hoping to learn something more about the man she loved. What happens there gives the film (based on a romantic novel by Lenore Coffee) an added boost of emotional suspense, but director Lewis Allen (best known for helming the taut Frank Sinatra thriller Suddenly) doesn't really have his heart in it, . Turner was 10 years older than Connery (and it shows), and the film feels like a Douglas Sirk leftover--perfectly enjoyable as a standard '50s melodrama (and Paramount's DVD looks and sounds terrific), but not as polished or believable as Sirk's three-hankie classic Imitation of Life, in which Turner starred the following year. Think of this film as Turner's warm-up for Sirk's; both occupy similar emotional territory, and make for a supremely weepy double-feature. --Jeff Shannon

Customer Reviews

She assumed he was free - he'd told her he was in love with her.
Predictable in the extreme, what little situation there is just repeated and repeated until you want to slap ‘em all.
Le Stryge
Sean Connery steals this film with his great screen presence and a very believable performance.

I first saw this film about 10 years ago on AMC when I was in college. I instantly fell in love with it. Sean Connery, Lana Turner, and Glynis Johns are all superb. The story takes place in England during the waning days of WWII. This is a story of two women in love with the same man (who, ironically, is deceased). You cannot help but have a connection with the characters as you sit through this film. "Another Time, Another Place" gives the viewer a great feel for the period as well. I have owned the VHS copy for years. I just wish Paramount would release this one on DVD. Great film.

ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE is a fine romantic drama, with Lana Turner and Glynis Johns giving accomplished performances as two women whose lives had been touched and altered by the same man.

In the uncertain days of London and the Second World War, journalist Sara Scott (Lana Turner) meets handsome war correspondant Mark Trevor (Sean Connery) and they embark on a tender love affair. Only after Mark is tragically killed does Sara discover that he was married to Kay (Glynis Johns). The two women unexpectedly meet in Kay's Cornish village...and the scene is set for a dramatic confrontation. Beautifully-shot in black and white on VistaVision film stock, ANOTHER TIME ANOTHER PLACE ranks as one of Lana Turner's greatest films of the period. Glynis Johns gives Kay a dignity and strength which is heartbreaking. With Barry Sullivan, Sid James, Doris Hare and Robin Bailey. Despite what the DVD cover would have you believe, Sean Connery's role is quite small (this was his fourth film) but his role becomes the catalyst in bringing together the two women (the main plot of the film).

Turner's career received a much-needed boost with this film. Gone were her glory days of being M-G-M's premier Sweater Girl, and Turner was languishing in a series of bad comedies and musicals ("Mr Imperium" anyone?). ANOTHER TIME ANOTHER PLACE (and her Oscar-nominated role in "Peyton Place") put Turner back into the upper-echelon of Hollywood stars, a position she kept when "Imitation of Life" and "Portrait in Black", two sudsers from Universal, were released to great acclaim the following year.

Solid and intimate romantic drama.

When I first saw this movie years ago, it was taped off of Turner Classic Movies and the audio and visual was bad. I didn't watch it all the way through and didn't think this was a great movie. However, I recently did buy this movie and boy was I gladly diasppointed with my first judgement. Lana never has looked better. She looks young and has the most perfect figure. Story revolves around adultry. Lana has a romance with pre-Bond Sean Connery in England during World War II. He tells her that he is married with a child. They separate and reconcile just before Connery is killed in a plane crash. Lana has a nervous breakdown and decides to visit Sean Connery's cornish village. In Lana's weak emotional state, she decides to visit Sean Connery's home. Lana befriends his wife, Glynis Johns, who gives an excellent performance as the back at home wife, who always waits for her husband. As you can anticipate and wait, when does Glynis Johns finds out Lana is the woman, who stole her husband. Barry Sullivan, Joan Crawford's husband from "Queen Bee," plays the boss of Lana Turner, who waits patiently for Lana to come back to reality and back to him. Movie is A+ quality.

Trivia: One wonders how Lana acted and looked so good through movie because she was being harassed at the time by gangster boyfriend Johnny Stompanato. According to several Lana Turner biographies, he fought with Sean Connery and lost control over jealousy toward Lana Turner. Johnny Stompanato was exported out of the country because he legally wasn't supposed to be there. Shortly there afterwards, Johnny Stompanato was stabbed to death by Lana Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane, when Cheryl thought Johnny was going to kill her mother. This is one of the most famous Hollywood murder cases of all time.

Synopsis: A whirlwind romance ends in tragedy in this World War II drama starring a young Sean Connery in one of his first leading roles. Stationed in England, American reporter Sara Scott (Lana Turner) falls for (married) BBC journalist Mark Trevor (Connery), and the two begin a torrid romance. When Mark's plane crashes, Sara is devastated and decides the only way she can move past her grief is to visit the town Mark grew up in.

We never get to witness much of this whirlwind romance; which is a huge disappointment! We only share a few of their torrid embraces which are mostly sentimental slop instead of heated exchanges. I usually love the sentiment - but this film started to to irritate me at times because there wasn't much sustenance to back up the lines they were feeding eachother.

Please believe that I love Sean Connery - especially his early films; and I LOVE Lana Turner! But *this* Lana Turner is a good ten years older than Connery and it really shows in "Another Time, Another Place".

Connery's youthful, debonair exuberance and charisma is in contrast to Lana's smoothed over, made-up and polished appearance - and ultimately her performance. This makes their chemistry seem a bit feigned to me: while their emotions are all "gushing out", over-done & all over the place - Lana's demeanor is still very sophisticated. This doesn't mesh well.

Thank goodness Mark has only a small part in the film; as much as we love Connery - his character is a (charming) coward.
