Trivia

Although the films had nothing in common except time travel, the H.G. Wells estate sued the producers for plagiarism. Ironically the producers of "The Time Machine" recycled the star, Rod Taylor. See more »

Goofs

In the early scenes of the spaceship in orbit around Mars, and then blasting away from the planet, there is a bright blue sky visible through the portholes at all times, instead of the blackness of outer space. See more »

enjoyable science fiction from the 1950's
25 March 2000 | by (Derby, KS USA) – See all my reviews

I first remember seeing this movie on TV as a young boy in the early 1960's. From then on I watched it as often as it came on until they stopped showing science fiction movies on that station. For about twenty years or so, I did not see it, and then last year, I found it on video.

Much to my delight, I found that I still enjoyed it as much as ever.

The film concerns the first flight to Mars, and what happens when they start back. Hitting a great turbulence, the ship crash lands on an unknown planet, and the crew meets with many adventures before they discover that they are are on earth in the far future, and they deduce that an atomic war has taken place a couple of centuries prior to their landing.

The film has a good plot, cast and script, and even if the special effects are not what we are capable of today, it still is a movie that is worthwhile seeing.

Like I said before, I still enjoy it even after thirty years.
