Customer Reviews

An all time classic movie and one of my very favorites.
A Customer
I first saw this movie when I was a little kid, and have watched it at least thirty times since, it had a great impact on my life.
I think a movie like this is hard to make a better version of.

I wonder how many minds were blown back in the day when George Pal's The Time Machine (1960) was released? I'm not so much speaking of the special effects (which were, and still are amazing), but more so the concepts presented within the film, with regards to traveling in the fourth dimension i.e. moving back and forth through time all while occupying the same space throughout...I know, I know, the ideas had been around for some time as author H.G. Wells had created the work the film was based on way back around the turn of the 20th century, but surely the film reached a large audience, quite a few probably never having read his novel. Produced and directed by George Pal (When Worlds Collide, The War of the Worlds), a pioneer in fantasy and sci-fi cinema, the film stars Rod Taylor (World Without End, The Birds), in what is probably his best-known role as George, a scientist with a hankering to break on through to the other side. Also appearing is Alan Young, whom many may recognize as the voice for Disney's Scrooge McDuck (he also was the only actor from the original film to appear in the recent 2002 remake starring Guy Pearce), Yvette Mimieux (Where the Boys Are, The Black Hole), Tom Helmore (Vertigo), Whit Bissell (Airport, Soylent Green), and Sebastian Cabot (Kismet), whom many may remember as the rotund Mr. French from the late 60's television show `Family Affair'.

The story begins in Victorian England with the arrival of a group of distinguished looking gentlemen to the home of their colleague George, played Rod Taylor.

Format: DVD
Like most people, I had only seen this classic science fiction movie on television. That never detracted from the story, which is one of the best that Wells wrote, but it didn't prepare me for how great this movie looks and sounds. The DVD provides brilliant color and a generally sharp picture with only a little, infrequent softness that I suspect is from the original film. I was surprised at how clean the transfer is. I did not see any scratches, dust or other defects. The movie is presented in its original, widescreen aspect ratio. The sound is also excellent. It has been remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and it is an excellent job for a movie that is forty years old. As you would expect from such an old sound track, most of the action is in the center and front channels, but it uses the rear channels (especially noticable in key scenes, as when Rod Taylor is making echoes in the ruined dome building) and the subwoofer kicked in a few times, also. The disc provides more extras than you would expect from a Warner release of an old movie. It includes a trailer, filmographies for the three lead actors and George Pal, and a very good behind-the-scenes documentary. The documentary was produced by Bob Burns 32 years after the making of the movie and focuses on the important part the time machine prop played in the making of the movie and it's history since, with an interesting account of how Burns found and then restored the original prop. The documentary also features a scene in which Rod Taylor and Alan Young recreate their characters from the movie, acting out a scene that might have appeared in the movie but did not. The scene uses the restored time machine prop to good effect and it was rather touching to see these much older actors slip so comfortably into their roles.Read more ›

Format: DVD
It's finally coming! Even with all the glitz and glam of today's sci-fi movies, some still stand the test of... TIME. Such is the case with The Time Machine! True there are a few things about the movie that date it, but it will forever remain as one of the best sc-fi stories we've ever known. That credit goes to H.G. Wells as much as to George Pal, for presenting this tale to us on the screen as well as on the written page. The Time Machine is certainly a worthy entry into the realm of DVD technology. It's a colorful romp through the eons on a fabulous Machine that, viewing on DVD, would be a virtual treat to the eyes and ears. Not to mention the nifty extras that come with it, like a sort of 'Behind the Scenes' look at the movie in a documentary "Time Machine: The Journey Back". And to me, it's always a little added treat to view the original theatrical trailers, especially as crisp and clean as the DVD technology allows. If you're a fan of Pal's wonderful films, a great companion DVD would be Arnold Leibovit's "The Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal", which is also now available on DVD. This documentary not only covers The Time Machine, but all of Pal's other marvelous works, including "War of the Worlds", "The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao", "Conquest of Space", "Destination Moon", and many, many more. If you had a copy of this documentary on tape, then you're going to want to own it on DVD too! Why? Because Arnold has included almost two hours of extras on the DVD! It's almost like having a whole extra documentary all about George Pal! "The Time Machine" and "The Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal" go together like bread and butter, in my opinion. My hat's off to the DVD transfer of Time Machine, as well as to Arnold Leibovit, for the DVD transfer of Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal and all the extras he's added!

The Time Machine Blu-ray?
I can't believe that the original is not slated for Blu Ray at this time. I have seen so many loser flicks in Blu Ray and to think that this classic movie based on a huge timeless (pardon the pun) story not apparently being considered is tragic. not for just you or I but for all that would and... Read More

The original 4 track stereo mix, or mono mix are not on the DVD.
M. Gaudet:

If you're referring to the 1960 version of "The Time Machine", here is what I think is the story. The film, at least the prints shown in local theaters, was never presented in stereophonic sound at the time.

However, the original magnetic tapes, used to make the optical... Read More
