Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour
"Somewhere In Time" - Complete Soundtrack
They found it on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel; the hotel was built in 1887, and the owners reportedly offered the use of the hotel and surrounding grounds for free to the production in exchange for a favorable treatment in the film. Mackinac Island itself fit in very well with the themes of the film; no automobiles are permitted, and the island relies instead on horses or bicycles. The cast and crew of Somewhere in Time each had their own numbered bike, although the use of one vehicle was negotiated successfully for the purposes of transporting equipment only. As Reeve explains in his 1998 biography, Still Me, "We began filming in late May 1979, and the location quickly cast a spell on our entire company. The real world fell away as the story and the setting took hold of us. I've rarely worked on a production that was so relaxed and harmonious. Even the hard-boiled Teamsters and grips from Chicago succumbed to the charms of the island and the mellow atmosphere on the set." What the producers didn't know was that Reeve, an avid pilot, had a small plane hidden on another part of the island; on days off, he, Jane Seymour, and other members of the cast would jet off for secret day trips.
Although Reeve found himself mobbed on the island by Superman-crazed fans (who eventually left him alone after he struck a deal to meet and greet them after the shoot), the rest of the cast quietly went about their business uninterrupted. Jane Seymour, best known up to this point as a Bond girl (from Live and Let Die , 1973), was cast as Elise McKenna, the enchanting young beauty who provides the motivation for Collier's time traveling. When she first met Reeve, she discovered he had been training for the part with a Method acting coach who recommended that Reeve practice writing daily since he was playing an author. Seymour was amused but pointed out to the actor that his character has writer's block, recalling that Reeve "got this funny look on his face; kind of startled, you know? 'You're absolutely right,' he said. 'Let's go have dinner.' And that was the end of the writing." Needless to say, Reeve and Seymour got along famously and generated an undeniable onscreen chemistry together, but their ballroom dancing was another matter; guess who was dubbed "Superfoot" after stepping on his co-star's toes one too many times?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJLeWG_q1fU best sound track
