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.
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.Read more ›
