On A Clear Day You Can See Forever location: Daisy Gamble regresses: the Royal Pavilion, Brighton, Sussex

In Vincente Minnelli’s strange reincarnation musical, Daisy Gamble (Barbra Streisand) tries to quit smoking with the aid of hypnosis, but ends up regressing to past lives.

Set in New York, where hypnotist Dr Marc Chabon (Yves Montand) sings Come Back to Me from the roof of the Metlife Building (still known as the Pan-Am Building) in central Manhattan, sending out his thought waves to Daisy at the corner of Lexington Avenue; filming also in Central Park and at the Lincoln Center.

The regression scenes used the Royal Pavilion, Brighton, East Sussex in England. This famous Regency extravagance can also be seen in Richard Loncraine’s 30s-set Richard III, with Ian McKellen, as well as Neil Jordan's The End of the Affair.
