A Solid Forgotten Film Feb. 9 2006
By Sturgeon54 - Published on Amazon.com
More than a cliched love story, this movie actually has a highly original sci-fi concept with something rare in the genre - strong human characters. A physicist experimenting with a new particle accelerator is accidentally transported into a parallel universe in which he is instead a bestselling novelist, has a wife (played by Joan Collins), and must put up with some very strange differences (such as the fact that Kennedy was never assassinated and Britain was never air-raided by the Nazis during WWII). He falls in love with Collins' character while he is there, but there are further complications when he returns to the real world which I won't reveal. An entertaining movie, and you can tell there was a real mind behind it.

Quest for love - Joan Collins (DVD 2011) Jan. 8 2011
By sksrilanka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I am happy that Amazon.com has decided to release this film on DVD, despite it being little known and underestimated.

It is a love story with a remarkable sci-fi twist to it. It is an old British movie ( 1971) made by that,then well known Producer-Director combination of Betty Box and Ralph Thomas. With no special effects, stunts or violence, it is a 'thinking persons' film and is very imaginative and effective.

Without divulging too much of the story, it deals with a Nuclear Physicist transported to a parallel universe following an uncontrolled experiment with a Particle Accelerator. Both universes are based in London in 1971, but in the parallel universe he is a playwright.

This other London in 1971 had not experienced World War II. The layout of the city is the same but technological and medical advances seem to be lagging slightly behind the London in the our Universe. Could it be a hint that the war stimulated faster development after the initial destruction?

The new social relationships and how he tries to adapt to the new setting is fascinating, with good direction, screen play, and very good acting by Joan Collins, Tom Bell, Denholm Elliot and host of minor actors who traditionally made a success of these old British films.

This DVD will rate 5 stars very deservedly.

Very good scifi film performed by Joan Collins.
I was looking for this film (at last on CD) since several years ago.
The story is a mix of science, fiction and love.

Incredible Movie Dec 25 2012
By E. Steiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you are a true Sci Fi fan, enjoy the old parallel universe story, this is the movie for you. It stars Joan Collins-how much better can it get. A true classic that is rarely seen on TV or Cable.

Great story, actors and soundtrack! Dec 7 2012
By C. Sword - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've loved this movie ever since I saw it on TV in the early '80's. I found the short story in the library, but the movie was better. It's an unusual sci-fi time travel romance. As an ex-Pan Am stewardess, I related to the modern day portion of the story. I found several bootleg copies on the internet, but I never thought it would be produced on DVD since I felt the market would be limited to the few people who know the movie. It's definitely a sleeper! I also loved the soundtrack, which I would buy if it was also produced on a CD. Buy the movie! If you're a romantic, you won't be disappointed.
