Another Time, Another Place is a 1958 British film melodrama starring Lana Turner, Barry Sullivan and Sean Connery. The film is based on Lenore J. Coffee's 1955 novel Weep No More.


An American reporter, Sara Scott (Turner) is working in London during the last year of the Second World War and begins an affair with a British reporter named Mark Trevor (Connery). Sara is conflicted on whether to marry her rich American boss (Sullivan) or the charming young reporter she is having an affair with. Finally, she chooses Mark, only to find that he is married and has a son back in his hometown. The two separate shortly thereafter, then decide to stay together and work out their problems.

As the war in Europe is ending, Mark Trevor is killed in a plane crash, sending Sara into mourning. Her boss, after a few months, convinces her to catch a ship back to New York and work for him. However, before she goes, she goes to Trevor's very scenic seaside hometown and lives for a time with his young widow (Johns) and son as she works to fashion Trevor's war reporting into a book. She is conflicted about telling Mrs. Trevor the truth about her relationship with Trevor, but finally does so, causing Mrs. Trevor to emotionally break down and order Sara to leave.

During the film's principal photography in Britain, Connery was confronted by gangster Johnny Stompanato, then-boyfriend of Lana Turner. The jealous man pointed a gun at Connery and warned him to keep away from Turner. Connery answered by grabbing the gun out of Stompanato's hand and twisting his wrist, causing him to run off the set. After Stompanato's death, it was rumored that an LA mobster held Connery responsible, forcing him to go into hiding for a short period.[1]
