Today on TCM: Go Back in Time With Time Travel Movies

Posted on May 28, 2015 at 8:00 am

Tonight Turner Classic Movies has some time travel treats, including George Pal’s classic version of H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine,” starring Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux.

Also on the schedule is “Time After Time,” with Malcolm McDowell as Wells himself, using his time machine to chase Jack the Ripper into the future — and falling in love with a 20th century woman played by Mary Steenburgen.

” Berkeley Square” has Leslie Howard going back in time and inhabiting the body of his look-alike ancestor, and “Dr. Who and the Daleks” takes the decades-long television hero to the big screen.

And be sure to check out the legendary short “La Jetée,” a spooky story about the few remaining humans after WWIII trying to send a survivor back in time.
