When traveling back into the past, we see visuals from WWII, the Civil War, and Indians attacking a wagon train; these events are out of proper sequence. The Indian wars took place after the Civil War and should appear before it when traveling back through time. See more »


Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: The past, of course, still exists
Mr. Denning: Oh?
Dr. 'Doc' Gordon: Suppose a scientist on a planet some fifty light years from here were observing Earth, he would at this moment be looking at light rays that left this Earth fifty years ago. He might very well be watching the First World War. In effect, some full fifty years' of history would be contained in those beams traveling to that distant planet
Mr. Denning: That's quite an idea!

Why it's similar to 1964's The Time Travelers
14 October 2010 | by dan-1315See all my reviews

As I understand it, Ib Melchior and Dave Hewitt had a falling out over 1964's The Time Travelers. Both are credited with coming up with the story, but Hewitt left the production and Melchior wrote the screenplay and directed this little sci-fi B-film classic himself. Hewitt wrote his own version of the movie and later directed it as 1967's Journey to the Center of Time, making just a slightly different version. I can't remember ever seeing what is essentially a remake arrive just three years after the first movie's release. But then again, both films were grist for drive-ins where few people probably noticed the similarities. These movies had me scratching my head wondering if I had seen it before on TV where, after repeated viewings, I was able to make the connection between the two films.
