Flags of Somewhere in Time - 1980

It was 100 years ago that Richard Collier was able to travel back to 1912 to find love. He used the power of his mind rather than relying on machines and gadgets. The first and perhaps the best time travel drama of the 20th century.

This was the plot to Somewhere in Time 1980 that starred Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour.

Somewhere in Time was filmed on an island resort in the Great Lakes - Lake Superior to be exact. The power of this film made it a cult-classic, whereby fans hold conventions every autumn at the film's primary location.

In the pictures above you can see the US flag and a yellow flag of the Grand Hotel with its name written on it in red cursive.

The plot line of this movie was elegantly recycled in James Cameroon's 1997 version of the Titanic. Coincidentally both story lines take place 100 years ago in 1912. And both films were love stories.

It illustrates the timeless dimension of love whether it be a century or fifteen years ago - even now in 2012. Love is love as it will be in 2112.
