response to Theo (mrs.) Robinson's comment on 1949 time machine
22 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

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?

Well teddy boy, the movie is a thinker, which you, my friend, are not! You are a Disneyite, and see things only on the surface. If what the time machine looks like, is all that matters to you, I suggest sitting down and actually look at this film, or, maybe pick up the book,(that has no photos), and pay attention to the message/statement H.G.Wells is making.
