I always liked Rod Taylor. He's a strong, rugged, no-nonsense kind of guy. Every time I hear George Pal's name I immediately start to sing, "But When worlds collide, said George Pal to his bride 'I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills'" I am also slightly enamored with Yvette, though she doesn't really have a great role.
One oft he few times when the mobilisation of all available Hollywood trickery really resulted in something like movie-magic. The antiquated physicality of the FX only plays to their charms. Rod Taylor proves to be an adequate emotional performer, but he demonstrates great physical presence.
Close-to-the-novel adaptation of one of the best time travel science-fiction novels ever made. The Time Machine is a classic invention and a cinematic marvel and love that the movie didn't change the Victorian settingl. Rod Taylor do his most beloved role and the film has gorgeous use of colors. Villains The Morlocks are dated though and wouldn't the smart inventor get bored with his brainless love after a while?
Well, it's not like my expectation. But damn, I love the ending. It has a good impact to me. The special effects were a way ahead in its time. It's worth to watch because it's so entertaining. Like it!
