One of my favorite movies ever, and I am not one for “chick flicks”. The music was divine 🙂

For years, I thought that we were some of only a very few who had ever seen the movie – it wasn’t until much, much later that I realized there were fans all over the country! I would love to visit the hotel in the film one of these days – but not on the weekend of the annual “Somewhere in Time” get-together….
I noticed that all of the music has a distinct “Rachmaninoff” feel to it. I’m a huge fan of the Romantic composers from that time period.
His “Variation on a Theme from Paganini” was the cornerstone for the music. And I would love to go to the Grand Hotel and Holland Island lighthouse, AKA Big Red. But in the summer, because I hate snow and cold 😀
