The Time Machine (1960)

The Time Machine – also known promotionally as H.G. Wells' The Time Machine – is a 1960 Metrocolor time travel science fiction film based on the 1895 novel of the same name by H. G. Wells in which a man from Victorian England constructs a time-travelling machine which he uses to travel to the future where a new civilisation has gone wrong after a nuclear war. The film stars Rod Taylor, Yvette Mimieux and Alan Young.

The film was produced and directed by George Pal, who had earlier made a film version of Wells' The War of the Worlds (1953). Pal always intended to make a sequel to The Time Machine, but he died before it could be produced; the end of Time Machine: The Journey Back functions as a sequel of sorts. In 1985, elements of this film were incorporated into The Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal, produced by Arnold Leibovit.

The film received an Oscar for time-lapse photographic effects showing the world changing rapidly.

The "Morlocks" nick name was used by the "Uncanny X Men", by a group of mutants apparently too mutated or otherwise to even try to pass as normal. (In character) they themselves chose that moniker to keep "normal or otherwise outsiders" away.
