I had met George Pal twice in the late 70's and found him one of the most wonderful & kindest men in Hollywood. So I really took the news of his passing in 1980 quite hard. Hitchcock had passed away earlier that same week, but it was Pal's death...continued

I loved movie "The Time Machine" when I first saw it in 1960. I'm no longer 8 years old, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this presentation of it at the grand old Alex Theatre on Saturday afternoon.

The Time Machine is a classic movie. It was very good. I love the Alex Theatre in Glendale where it was shown. I had a great time!

Description

Producer/Director George Pal scored a major hit with his 1953 version of H. G. Wells science fiction novel WAR OF THE WORLDS. Pal teamed with the best selling British author again in 1960 for the enormously popular M-G-M production of The Time Machine.

Rugged Australian actor Rod Taylor became a major star as the time traveler and Yvette Mimieux established herself as a 60’s icon with her portrayal of the golden haired Weena.

The production won an Academy Award® for its Special Effects and stop action animation sequences. M-G-M’s veteran Makeup Artist William Tuttle and Pal himself created the look of the hideous, subterranean Morlocks who prey on the defenseless Eloi.

Hosting both screenings will be science fiction writer and filmmaker Paul Davids (The Sci Fi Boys) who will screen Famous Monsters of Filmland creator Forrest Ackerman’s eulogy for George Pal.

The program concludes on the big screen with George Pal’s puppetoon, Rhythm in the Ranks (1941) and News of the Day – Headline Highlights of 1956.
