Description by OLDIES.com:

From H.G. Wells' landmark novel comes this beloved adventure about the inventor of a time-travel device that whisks him through a war-ravaged 20th century and into a far-off era where humans are enslaved by evil subterranean mutants. Rod Taylor, Yvette Mimieux and Alan Young star in this Best Special Effects Oscar winner.

Product Description:

Setting the temporal starting point of the classic H.G. Wells novel in the year 1960 (rather than 1900), this engrossing adaptation follows the Time Traveler as he passes through World Wars I, II, and III and finally stops in the year 802,701. There he finds an apathetic, placid people called the Eloi and falls in love with one of their number, the beauteous blonde Weena. To his horror, however, he learns that the Eloi's apathy is generated by a maniacal, cannibalistic underworld--and that the only way to help them is to incite a revolution. George Pal's version of THE TIME MACHINE is an exciting and faithful cinematic production of H.G. Wells's 1895 classic. Academy Awards: Best Special Effects.

Rating 5.0 Morlocks with your Bagel and Creamcheese? Movie Lover: from Teaneck, NJ US -- June, 9, 2006

OK - This was another George Pal movie that ROCKED! Based on one of HG Well's greatest novels, George Pal did it again! Only this time, a little smirk was on his face for some cute little statements (check out the fashion dummy's change of clothes as our hero goes through the immediate future).

Quite a movie - and some real good acting and special effects. The photography and setting designs were very convincing, and Mr. Taylor did a fine job in the starring role - so did Yvette Mimieux in as the co-starring female Eloi in this film. All I can say about the Warlocks were that they all needed so see a real good Orthodontist and perhaps dye their hair a different color. They all looked like some bunch of the Hulk's grandmothers lurching around underground!

Seriouosly though, I loved the way Mr. Taylor returned to his present only a few seconds after he left even though he stayed in the future for a considerable number of days, only to return to it. Marty McFly (Back to the Future) can only be envious of this movie!

Take it from me - this IS a good flick to watch and enjoy!
