5.0 out of 5 stars Complete DVD on the production, March 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Somewhere in Time (Collector's Edition) (DVD)
For lovers of this unusual love story this high quality release includes a great documentary on the back story...how the production came to be from inception, the original novel, Bid Time Return, written by Richard Matheson. Matheson was one of Rod Serlings's favorite writers on his now classic TV show, The Twilight Zone. The back story includes how Mathenson was actually inspired to write the novel by a lovely old photo of the beautiful turn of the last century stage actress, Maude Adams. The production did not come together easily and we see how it was finally produced as a team effort.

There's a great deal of information here. For example, the fact that Jane Semour knew the extrardinary composer John Barry and was able to talk him into writing the score for this modestly budgeted film made a great difference, perhaps the single most critically important aspect of the production, a factor that has taken it to cult status. Very worthwhile, highly recommended.
