Film (1971). Peter Rogers Productions. Dir Ralph Thomas, starring Tom Bell, Joan Collins, Denholm Elliott, Laurence Naismith. Screenplay Terence Feely, based on "Random Quest" (1961) by John WYNDHAM. 91 mins. Colour.
   Romance about a physicist (Bell) accidentally transferred to a PARALLEL WORLD, where he falls in love with the wife (Collins) of his alter ego, a playwright and cad, whose place he has taken. She dies. On being sucked back to our own world, he desperately quests for her counterpart, hoping to save her and have a second chance at love. He does. Good performances, so-so as sf, with the differences of the new world(Kennedy not assassinated, etc.) established only perfunctorily. Wyndham's original story is one of his weakest.
