Overview

Lana Turner stars as Sara Scott, an American war correspondent whose whirlwind romance with a young British journalist (Sean Connery) ends in tragedy when his plane crashes while covering an assignment. After recovering from a nervous breakdown, Sara tries to come to terms with her grief by visiting her lover's widow (Glynis Johns). Based on the novel Weep No More by Lenore Coffee, Another Time, Another Place did excellent box-office business thanks to the concurrent real-life scandal involving the death of Turner's gangster boyfriend Johnny Stompanato at the hands of her teenage daughter.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Sudsy and kind of silly, Another Time, Another Place will please fans of soapy melodramas, thanks in large part to its pleasing cast. It's not that Lana Turner and Sean Connery (who appears in only the first third of the film) are giving especially memorable performances; indeed, this florid little piece of melodrama doesn't rally call for deep-down honest emoting from its leading players. But Turner and Connery give genuine movie star performances, the kind of artificial yet hard-to-resist turns that call for gorgeous appearance (no problem for either performer here), smoldering looks, tight embraces and the ability to spit out wagonloads of emotion at the drop of a hat. The actual charisma between the stars comes and goes, but when they're on together, they are loads of fun. For actually good performances, however, one need only look to the supporting cast. Barry Sullivan is only adequate, but Glynis Johns is truly lovely, turning in a touching, warm and lively performance that is a joy. Sidney James does quite well with his seen-it-all character, and little Martin Stephens impresses with his nightmare sequence. Lewis Allen's direction is so-so, but Jack Hildyard's camerawork is quite good.
