Today is June 27th. And you know what that means.....
Elise McKenna: "Is it you? Is it?"
Richard Collier: "Yes. It is."
Today marks the 102nd anniversary of the day Elise McKenna and Richard Collier meet on the beach in front of the Grand Hotel in Somewhere in Time, one of my all-time favorite films.
This is such a gorgeous, romantic film. I love it to pieces. Beautiful soundtrack, scrumptious costumes, dreamy setting and scenery, Jane Seymour, 1980s charm.....really, what's not to love? : ) Somewhere in Time is just plain classic. It's one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. (Read my post about the movie/review here.)
"I thought I'd lost you!"
"Oh, never! Never, never, never!"
The portrait scene, when Richard first sees the portrait of Elise in the Hall of History. This is such a dramatic scene, and I love how the Rachmaninoff Rhapsody fits it so perfectly.
"The Man of My Dreams" scene, where Elise starts to share her feelings for Richard in the middle of the play, unscripted.
And the Reunion scene, my favorite part of the movie, when Elise comes back to the hotel after Richard believes he's lost her for good. He sees her down on the lawn, and they run to each other on the steps of the hotel, embracing passionately.....oh, it's so romantic I just about can't take it. *dreamy sigh* : )
Elise's face when they first see each other.....
Walking outside the hotel...
