Somewhere in Time (movie)
Somewhere in Time is a 1980 time-travel romance film starring Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, Christopher Plummer, and Teresa Wright. Though this movie bombed at the box office, it has earned a loyal following since, regarded by many as a cult film.
The film is based on the 1975 novel Bid Time Return , by science fiction writer Richard Matheson. Since then, the book has been rereleased under the film's title. The film is known for its musical score, composed by John Barry. In addition to Barry's score, the eighteenth variation of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini runs throughout the film.
Somewhere in Time received several awards, including Saturn Award for Best Costume, Saturn Award for Best Music, Saturn Award for Best Fantasy Film. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Costume Design.
In 1990, Somewhere in Time fan Bill Shepard founded INSITE, the International Network of Somewhere In Time Enthusiasts . Membership costs $19.12, in honor of the year in which most of the movie takes place. In 1997, the fan club paid for Reeve's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
