On a Clear Day You Can See Forever

A kooky young woman goes to a psychiatrist to cure her smoking. The psychiatrist discovers through hypnosis that she is the reincarnation of a well-born English lady — with whom he finds himself falling in love — in Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner's musical.


In Michael Mayer's 2011 reimagining, a young smoker named David visits psychiatrist Dr. Bruckner to break his habit. The doctor finds himself drawn to David's past-life identity, a 1940s jazz singer named Melinda who emerges during their hypnosis sessions, while David begins falling for the psychiatrist.
