Audience Reviews for The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan
★ (out of four) Dreadfull made for tv move from 1979 that features several television stars in their prime, like Lindsay Wagner, Linda Gray, and Marc Singer. Too bad just being a big name can't even come close to saving this. Lindsay Wagner plays a woman who moves in an old Victorian style mansion. There are many things that intrigue her about the house, especially the items that have been left behind. In the attic she finds and old dress. She puts it on an instantly finds herself transported back in time to when someone else used to wear the dress. She meets a man from that era and falls in love. I know it is based on a beloved book, which I hope is much better than this. The plot leaves a lot to be desired and the performances are laughable.

I'm just joking. The 1979 made-for-television movie, The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan, is not as vomit inducing as I anticipated. Something of a prelude to Jeannot Szwarc's Somewhere In Time, The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan suffers from some of the former's identical mistakes. Entirely too much cheese and sap water down this, potentially, compelling love story. The time-traveling and somewhat gothic atmosphere are the only factors that save this fare from its dreadfully banal love affair. Visually, the picture looks hideously dated and evidently made-for-television. A possibly pleasant score supplements the movie but is so overemphasized that by the end I found it revolting. Lindsay Wagner stars as the title character but her performance constantly seems forced, and as for, her 1899 love interest, Marc Signer... Well, the clearly 70s sideburns take away any respect that I had for the picture capturing the period correctly. His dialogue and mannerisms are horrendously overdone. Overall, The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan is an excessively corny chick flick with poor dialogue and even worse acting.[/font][/b] [center][b][font=Tahoma][img]http://www.lindagray.com/JennieLoganTwo.jpg[/img][/font][/b][/center]
