Great Late Night Film

"I first saw this film about 10 years ago on AMC when I was in college. I instantly fell in love with it. Sean Connery, Lana Turner, and Glynis Johns are all superb. The story takes place in England during the waning days of WWII. This is a story of two women in love with the same man (who, ironically, is deceased). You cannot help but have a connection with the characters as you sit through this film. "Another Time, Another Place" gives the viewer a great feel for the period as well. I have owned the VHS copy for years. I just wish Paramount would release this one on DVD. Great film."
Turner in a fine performance; but the film really belongs to

"ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE is a fine romantic drama, with Lana Turner and Glynis Johns giving accomplished performances as two women whose lives had been touched and altered by the same man.
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."
Introducing Sean Connery

"I have loved Sean Connery since I was 10 years old (I'm now 58) and this movie "introduced" him. It's a great love story, filmed in black and white and a great addition to my library of Sean Connery movies."
