QUEST FOR LOVE and LEGACY from Scorpion Releasing

On February 22, Scorpion Releasing will be putting out an interesting pair of releases: Karen Arthur's  LEGACY with Joan Hotchkis and Ralph Thomas' QUEST FOR LOVE starring Joan Collins.  Written by and starring Joan Hotchkis (BREEZY), LEGACY depicts the mental deterioration of an upper class housewife in the isolation of her perfect home.  LEGACY was the first film of director Karen Arthur, who followed this up with THE MAFU CAGE (also available from Scorpion Releasing in a great extras-laden special edition package).  Editor Carol Littleton (BELOVED), cinematographer John Bailey (CAT PEOPLE), and Roger Kellaway (SILENT SCREAM) worked on both LEGACY and THE MAFU CAGE.  QUEST FOR LOVE is the feature film adaptation of John Wyndham's story "Random Quest" (you may know Wyndham as the author of DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS and VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED's source novel THE MIDWICH CUCKOOS).  A scientist (the late Tom Bell, STRAIGHT ON TIL MORNING) finds himself in an alternate reality when a scientific experiment goes wrong.  Besides World War II never happening and man not having yet reached the moon, he is married to Tracy (Joan Collins, FEAR IN THE NIGHT), a woman he disliked in his own reality but finds himself falling for in this world.  When he gets back to his own reality, her life depends on him tracking her down before she falls victim to a tragedy he has already witnessed.  The source story "Random Quest" has also been adapted twice for British television.
