Audience Reviews for Berkeley Square

A tremendously creative film featuring a mystical time traveling by Leslie Howard's character as he ventures to the period that he finds himself drawn to. Apparently the film was lost for a number of decades and I am tremendously happy that it has re-emerged.

Super Reviewer

A hard to find early sci-fi film about a man who time travels back to the 1700s and pretends to be one of his ancestors. You can say that this is the granddaddy of time travel flicks. There are some interesting topics of changing ones future by affecting the past. Leslie Howard is wonderful as a man who is seen by the others in the 1700s as a strange talking man who doesn't fit in their period. If you can find this lost gem, it's worth a watch.

Grade: B
