Seymour Attends 2002
In Time Weekend
Seymour journeyed to Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, to join
fans for the 12th Annual Somewhere In Time Weekend
(October 25-27, 2002). The always-extraordinary event which
draws SIT fans from around the world to celebrate "The
Most Romantic Love Story Ever Filmed', was super-charged by
Jane's visit. It was her first time back to the location of
the movie since filming wrapped in 1979. Read the
just-published 4th Quarter issue
of INSITE Magazine, 32 pages and over 80 photos!
displayed her paintings in the hotel's art gallery, and was
signing a special poster of one of her Monet-like
compositions, made just for the event. 50% of the proceeds for
the sale of these posters went to The Christopher Reeve
Paralysis Foundation. She visited the "Is
is You?" plaque at the lakeshore site of the famous
scene where Richard meets Elise for the first time in 1912.
The plaque is a permanent monument to the film, sponsored by
the INSITE fan society in 1993. INSITE has also sponsored the Star
on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Chris (1997) and
co-sponsored a Star for
also participated in The Costume Promenade, (always a
photogenic affair), as the majority of guests are decked out
in period attire for the Saturday evening festivities. She was
a vision of loveliness, wearing a glittering Escada gown, with
her hair coiffed like Elise . . . what a marvelous opportunity
to see our beloved Elise in person!
highlight of the evening was the electric moment when
Christopher Reeve called in by phone from NY to speak to the
over 850 in attendance! It was a huge surprise, and the
audience roared with cheers and applause! Many had tears in
their eyes, witnessing the two stars speaking to each other in
their presence. Later in the program Jane came to the stage to
answer questions for about 30 minutes and she performed her
"Man of My Dreams" soliloquy - the key scene in the
film - to everyone's great delight.
next morning, Sunday, Jane signed more autographs in the
Parlor and gave a farewell message before leaving the island.
She has been invited for all previous 11 annual SIT Weekends,
but always had conflicts in her schedule. How extraordinary it
was for all that she was able to make it this time!
