Synopsis of the Movie Somewhere in Time
When Richard goes to dinner, there is a 40 min wait, so he starts exploring. He discovers a picture of Elise McKenna in the hotel's Hall of History and is captivated by her beauty. He wants to know more about her. He goes to the local library to research Elise McKenna and found she was a great box office draw in the early 1900's. She was born nearly 100 years earlier in 1885. When he finds a photo of her in her later years, he realizes she is the woman who gave him the watch at the party back in 1972. Now, he must know more!
He located the home of the biography writer to get more information on Elise. The writer had a collection of McKenna's personal items, including a dress from her last play and a book she was particularly fond of on time travel. He found out that Elise had died the same night she had given him the watch.
You can hear the beautiful redition of Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini , along with John Barry's score here. Purchase if desired.As he continues to explore Elise's belongings, he is drawn to a music box designed as a replica of the Grand Hotel. When he opens the lid, he is surprised and further intrigued to hear it plays "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini".
He immediately went into action. He bought a suit from around 1912, cut his hair to match the style of the early 1900's, purchased 1912 money, and returned to the Grand Hotel. He removed everything that was current day from his sight and made a recording to help "hypnotize" himself to travel back to June 29, 1912. He laid on the bed, played the tape and started the process of traveling back in time. Back to 1912.
He closed his eyes and woke up in the past, 1912, but in the wrong hotel room. As soon as he escaped that room, he went in search of Elise. He found her walking by the lake and approached her.
Her first words to him were "is it you?" He answered, "yes".
