 (c) 1971   RANK   87 MINS  COLOR REG 1 DVD DUE FEB 22ND FROM SCORPION RELEASING

This was the first of two films Joan made for her old bosses at The Rank Organisation. The film had originally been cast with Britt Ekland, but it finally went into production with Joan. This film and the next "Revenge", were both produced by Peter Rogers. The original story "Random Quest", by acclaimed sci-fi writer John Wyndham, was first filmed by the BBC as an episode of the series "Out of the Unknown". The role of Colin was played by Keith Barron, while Tracy Reed played Ottilie. Apparently this episode was destroyed by the BBC and no longer exists. However in 2006 they made another version under the "Random Quest" title, starring Samuel West and Kate Ashfield. The film is one of the more intelligent science fiction films of the era and Joan looks sensational in it. She said of her role in the production.
" With Rank, it had been fifteen years since my "Coffee Bar Jezebel" roles, now I am playing leading ladies, sometimes if I was lucky, with a touch of humour or evil thrown in!"
Reviews for the film were good..
THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH..
" Quest For Love. A luscious, cliffhanging romance, threads through John Wyndham's eerie science fiction story!"
VARIETY..
" Peter Rogers presents an enthralling drama of a man who lives two existences in different times, putting one experience to advantage in the other. Raplh Thomas has coaxed most sympathetic performances from an admirable cast. Joan Collins has rarely been better..She is beautifully gowned throughout and looks gorgeous. She acts with warmth and has a fine foil in Tom Bell."
DAILY EXPRESS
" Tom Bell is quite bewildered as he plays a scientist whose experiments goes wrong. After waking up with a bump on the head, he finds life has changed! The theory of this tale has more holes than a trawling net! But Joan Collins as his wife looks lovely.. No matter what world she is in!
