The Time Machine (1978)

...and out of respect to "Priscilla Barnes Day", I decided to go with this made-for-TV movie adaptation of the H.G. Wells story as the movie of the day. I saw it when it first aired, liked it, and saw it again years later, after I knew who Priscilla Barnes was. She has the role that Yvette Mimieux played in the 1960 big screen adaptation. I've since seen that version, and believe it or not, I prefer this smaller scale made for TV version, because I felt the George Pal 1960 movie was rather stuffy. Not only that, but can you blame the guy for staying in the future, fighting the big bad Morlocks and all, just to hunker down with Priscilla Barnes? Hell, no.
