Storyline

In this follow up to the Time Machine, Filby is still the caretaker of his friend George's house ten years following George's trip to the future. Filby is then surprised to see his old friend return to his home to retrieve some books to help in his quest to rebuild humanity. During the stay, Filby implores his good friend to stay and resume his life there. However, George refuses and tells James that he has chosen to remain in the future. Also, it is a sad return for George due to the fact that at the time he returns it is just prior to the beginning of World War I and he does all he can to try to not reveal the tragic future of his good friend.

Sentimental and fascinating
16 June 2003 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This addendum to THE TIME MACHINE DVD/video is interesting for its tenacious follow-up on the fate of the actual "time machine" built for the movie -- but it's remarkable for the short "postscript" of an epilogue to the original motion picture.

What's particularly amazing is that 74-year-old Alan Young looks almost exactly as he did when he filmed the orignal movie back in 1959. It almost makes for an eerie effect -- like time itself *is* being fiddled with -- to see him back with his red hair, bushy moustache and Scottish brogue -- it almost seems to be an outtake from the original...
