Storyline

In middle age, inventor Stephen Minch is happy enough with his life, despite the fact that he has never risen to prominence even though his innovations have made others rich. His wife Martha, however, resents his lack of drive, his complacency, his willingness to live hand-to-mouth, and his ever-present and ever-annoying sidekick Hanus Wicks. Confronted by the evidence of Martha's years-long regret over how their lives together have turned out, Stephen decides to use his newest invention to repair her unhappiness. The new invention: a time machine. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

I, too, finally found it!
2 December 2001 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

I was so excited to find this website through my search for "The Star Wagon." Fortunately, I was able to remember the title of this unique 1960's production which I watched several times on public television when I was in my 20's.

I remember being absolutely mesmerized by Dustin Hoffman's performance; it was clear he was headed somewhere big. And the storyline, ah, the delicious food-for-thought storyline about "fate" and the different paths our lives can take depending on the choices we make.

It was absolutely marvelous, I've never forgotten it and I've often wondered why I've never seen it anywhere since. If IMDb does nothing else for me ever, it has justified its existence merely by finding "The Star Wagon" for me again.
