Elliott Gould is perfectly cast as Harry Lewis, a New Yorker entering middle age, suffering the usual crisis and recalling the good old days of his youth. On a cross-country trip by car with his family, Gould narrates flashbacks of his romance with Susannah York in the 1940s.

Lewis went after and married the beautiful, ‘unattainable’ rich girl. His hopes of career success did not materialize, with duo currently owning a clothing business.

Young actor-turned director Steven Paul shot Falling in Love Again in 1979 at age 20, but his feel for a past era and emphasis upon old-fashioned (but still effective) picture values bely his youthful status. Pic artfully captures the 1940s look and feel.

Michelle Pfeiffer makes a strong impression as York’s younger self.
