This is a wonderful film that has everything you could want in a movie-adventure, action and comedy. It has a great cast. Huckleberry Fox who plays Jonathan Knicks is wonderful in this movie. Peter Coyote plays Max Knickerbocker is perfect in his role. And Art Carney who plays the aged Henry Coogan.

The film starts in the present, and Johnathan is fascinated by the aviation stories that Henry tells him. He tells Johnathan that Max Nickerbocker wasn't only a pilot, but also an inventor. He then tells Johnathan about an invention that was nutty-but Henry does not tell him what it is-at least not yet.

When Henry becomes ill, he tells Johnathan about what Max called "The Time Traveler." He tells Johnathan that he has planned to test the machine-but is sick and can't do it. Johnathan Then decides to try to go back in time to save Max's life.

He does go back in time-almost 60 years-back to May, 1927. He meets Max Knickerbocker and the young Henry Coogan. Can he save Max's life? Can he alter the events in History? Watch this Movie and find out.

This Movie is also called "Time Flyer" It's great for the whole family-don't miss it.
