response to Theo (mrs.) Robinson's comment on 1949 time machine
Theo writes: "This version of THE TIME MACHINE required only a couple of sets and all of the effects were achieved through back projection which when you've got 405 line monochrome television with a weak broadcast signal probably would have appeared very acceptable to viewers at the time and much of the set design in not unimpressive though the time machine itself looks like a cross between a commode and a hairdryer !".....Huh?
