Quest for Love 1971 PG

87 mins United Kingdom Director. Ralph Thomas

Ralph Thomas – best known as director of the Dirk Bogarde/Doctor film series – adapts a John Wyndham story for this British sci-fi comedy which offers a sunnier spin on the H.G Wells-esque idea of an alternate British history.

A scientist (Tom Bell) transports himself to a parallel universe where the Second World War and space race never happened. Not only is this vision of Britain more optimistic, but he’s successful with a beautiful wife (Joan Collins) to boot. But when he’s accidentally returned to grim 1970s London, he tries to track down the real-world equivalent of his utopian wife.
