Retro SciFi of the Week…

The Time Machine (1960)

This is the first film adaptation of the H. G. Wells novel. Although the story isn’t the first time-travel story ever written, it’s the first one to include a device that allows one to travel forward or backward to arbitrarily selected points in time.

After six decades, the film has held up well and is still entertaining in it’s own right. The special effects are pretty good even by today’s standards. They won an Academy Award when the film debuted.

Other film adaptations were made in 1978 and 2002, but they deviated more substantially from the book.

@Pat I think I saw the 2002 version. It was a nice watch.
