A Trip to Mackinac Island (is a trip to another time)
I just returned from a trip to Mackinac (pronounced Mack -i-naw) Island and the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, and I hope to post some info and photos soon, but for now here's the trailer from the 1980 movie Somewhere in Time, which was filmed there. The building is The Grand Hotel, the most exclusive and historic hotel on the island. The island was a perfect setting due to the fact that it still looks rather historic (motor vehicles not allowed, lots of horses and carriages). The tree where Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour are standing in this trailer is marked on the island (I took a hike past it). I do love the music from this movie, but I always feel rather sad, not only because of the subject matter, but also because Christopher Reeve is no longer with us.
