Product Description


Sean Connery only appears in the pivotal early scenes of Another Time, Another Place, but in his fourth film the future James Bond was already showing superstar potential. This U.S./British melodrama introduced Connery to American audiences in high style: He plays dashing World War II reporter Mark Trevor, first seen covering the defusing of an unexploded German missile in the British countryside. He's joined there by his journalist lover Sara Scott (Lana Turner), who's yet unaware that Trevor has a loving wife (Glynis Johns) and young son to whom he's still openly devoted. When fate takes a unexpected turn, Sara visits Trevor's Cornish village, hoping to learn something more about the man she loved. What happens there gives the film (based on a romantic novel by Lenore Coffee) an added boost of emotional suspense, but director Lewis Allen (best known for helming the taut Frank Sinatra thriller Suddenly) doesn't really have his heart in it, . Turner was 10 years older than Connery (and it shows), and the film feels like a Douglas Sirk leftover--perfectly enjoyable as a standard '50s melodrama (and Paramount's DVD looks and sounds terrific), but not as polished or believable as Sirk's three-hankie classic Imitation of Life, in which Turner starred the following year. Think of this film as Turner's warm-up for Sirk's; both occupy similar emotional territory, and make for a supremely weepy double-feature. --Jeff Shannon

In the last days of WWII, an American journalist (Lana Turner) falls quickly and deeply in love with a British reporter (Sean Connery). Just as she begins planning their future together, he admits he's already married.

This romance/melodrama is worth watching for the very young and charismatic Connery and the equally young and talented Glynis Johns, who plays his wife. Lana Turner, on the other hand, makes the movie almost unwatchable. Her platinum hair, thick make-up, and glamorous wardrobe don't fit a wartime correspondent and her acting is terrible. Every line is delivered in a breathy, petulant voice with indulgent/silly over-acting. Several supporting actors, including Barry Sullivan, are excellent, but Lana almost destroys the movie. I've watched it twice and fell asleep both times. (Re-watching it was a chore.)

The black and white movie is partially filmed in a charming English village but stock footage and fake outdoor sets detract greatly; the overall look is cheap. A silly, overwrought script that never really touches the heart makes this a movie for Sean Connery fans only.

Can't take credit for the title of this review, it's the NY TIMES TV listings capsule summary for the flick, but sidesplittingly true. This film's from Lana's mid-period; our girl's cast adrift from the haven of MGM, but still not sunk to the depths of THE BIG CUBE. She's carefully lacquered here, and has the opposite of chemistry with leading man Sean Connery, vital and attractive in an early film role. Their Forbidden Love Is Not To Be, as he has the good sense to die early on, leaving Lana to seek out his widow, Glynis Johns, so that she can -- oh, why bother? If you've seen more than three movies in your life, you're miles ahead of every plot turn. Fun for those of us who like our popcorn sprinkled with a healthy dose of suds.

HASH(0x9b857ba0) out of 5 stars Great Late Night Film Dec 19 2004
By Old Movie Buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
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.

HASH(0x9b857bf4) out of 5 stars Turner in a fine performance; but the film really belongs to Glynis Johns Jan. 11 2006
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

HASH(0x9b85c048) out of 5 stars "Another Lana Turner Masterpiece Worth Having In Your Collection" Jan. 22 2011
By Perry R. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I first saw this movie years ago, it was taped off of Turner Classic Movies and the audio and visual was bad. I didn't watch it all the way through and didn't think this was a great movie. However, I recently did buy this movie and boy was I gladly diasppointed with my first judgement. Lana never has looked better. She looks young and has the most perfect figure. Story revolves around adultry. Lana has a romance with pre-Bond Sean Connery in England during World War II. He tells her that he is married with a child. They separate and reconcile just before Connery is killed in a plane crash. Lana has a nervous breakdown and decides to visit Sean Connery's cornish village. In Lana's weak emotional state, she decides to visit Sean Connery's home. Lana befriends his wife, Glynis Johns, who gives an excellent performance as the back at home wife, who always waits for her husband. As you can anticipate and wait, when does Glynis Johns finds out Lana is the woman, who stole her husband. Barry Sullivan, Joan Crawford's husband from "Queen Bee," plays the boss of Lana Turner, who waits patiently for Lana to come back to reality and back to him. Movie is A+ quality.

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. As being a friend and someone who has corresponded with Cheryl, I can tell you that she has a heart of gold. It is a shame that many bad things have been written about her by unsympathic people. I would think any good child would do the same thing to protect their parent, who they thought was in immediate danger. Anyway, go buy this movie and enjoy.

HASH(0x9b85c414) out of 5 stars Unusual Bittersweet Romance June 2 2006
By gobirds2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE is a true romantic bittersweet classic. I love this unusual film from the 50s about love and its power to distort better judgment and commitment. Sean Connery steals this film with his great screen presence and a very believable performance. Glynis Johns as his faithful wife gives a very emotional performance and a good one as well. This is a very thought provoking film and examines the nature of our capacity to love and be loved but further questions the motivations for the power of love.

HASH(0x9b85c4f8) out of 5 stars Fine Lana Turner Drama ! March 23 2013

Good soap filmed in England. Lana Turner shines in role of other woman in love with a married man. Probably most enjoyable to Lana Turner fans.
