Where did the watch come from originally? Think about it.

I LOVED this movie--and was greatly surprised that I did. The period costumes, the great acting, and the location: Grand Hotel at Mackinaw Island made it really special.
As for going back in time: lighten up you linear thinkers, open up your mind to a beautiful love story, and bring out the Kleenex!

rslade--the return trip comes because there's still a penny (dated 1979) in Collier's (Reeve's) suit jacket pocket, which he forgot to leave behind (remember that the only way he's able to travel into the past successfully is that anything that could possibly remind him of the present has been stashed out of sight). The second he takes the penny out & sees its year--that's it. That's why describing 1912 on a played-back tape-recording didn't work. There were no tape-recorders in 1912.

One of my 80s favorites. Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour make screen magic with an elegant love story. Good stuff even 30 years later.

This is a real downer of a movie, and for no particular reason that I can see. The original trip through time pushes credulity, but the return trip just comes out of nowhere. The only strong character is the heavy: all the others are just wimps.

Time travel through a shift in consciousness, despite the mental struggle of Reeve's character to go back in time. beautiful movie.

A thought worth pondering: Time-space doesn't exist. It is an illusion created through perception.

Elyse (referring to the gold watch): "It's beautiful. Where did you get it?"
Richard: "It was...given to me."
