    As one of the first big studio sucessful SciFi efforts and as a well presented depiction of one of the first science fiction novels ever written, this is a must see. It does get a little hokey at times (giant butternut squash growing in trees for instance) but most of the dialogue costumes, sets and other artistic uses of the tools of the trade are well done.

    In the DVD in one of several reminences we learn the whole movie was made for 3/4 million dollars while Cleopatra a year later would run $40 million! There's just as much to wonder at in "The Time Machine". And Alan Young who plays a diverse set of characters in the original also appears in a re-enactment skit with Rod Taylor. The history of the machine itself is presented. Yes, this is worth the time to watch it even if you have to stretch it a little.
