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.

Additional Scene added to movie.
24 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a semi-documentary of the the 1960, George Pal movie, The Time Machine. It is available as an extra on the DVD. The original stars, Alan Young and Rod Taylor are brought back. The documentary focuses on what become of the prop that was used in the movie. Some of the special effects are discussed. It also includes an additional scene that adds some to the movie. I particularly liked the additional scene, it was very sentimental. Young and Taylor are very talented actors.
