I live in Michigan and Mackinac Island still raves about "Somewhere in Time." I was there last summer (my favorite place on earth.) Watched the movie again after I came back and I must say, IMHO, the movie did not age well. Horrible acting (especially Reeve), really stupid plot (not really time travel but self hypnosis).
While Jane Seymour is a beautiful woman, she does strike me as very self-absorbed.
Loved your anecdote.
