    You remember him as the guy from A Clockwork Orange and the guy who killed Kirk but this was a winner of a movie with him, David Warner and Mary Steenburgen about HG Wells traveling to Future day San Francisco.
    I believe its Warner Brothers who relased this.
    A commentary would be nice too.
    Please!

    He was also Caligula as well as the "NEW" Mr. Roarke in the bad Fantasy Island remake (as if the old one is a shakespearian classic) [​IMG]
    Dang, we must have the same taste in movies, because I love this film too. Good suspense, fish-out-of-water humor, biographically accurate, to the point that they knew H.G. enough...not that he made a time machine. Another advantage...it was filmed in San Francisco!
    Isn't it funny, that most films made in Toronto suck, and most made in San Francisco are cool? [​IMG]
    I found a link to another Warner beg thread that had quite a few people interested in it, enjoy...

    1) It's science fiction.
    2) It's a 1970s film.
    3) It belongs to Warner Brothers.
    CONCLUSION: We'll never see it on DVD.

    NOTE TO WARNER: This is NOT a FAMILY FILM. Automatic anamorphic widescreen transfer then, please.

    Image released the other Nicholas Meyer blending of classic fictional characters with reality, The Seven Percent Solution, in a "near VHS quality" 4:3 transfer. Yuck!(BTW, I know Meyer did not direct this particular film, but he wrote the novel and adapted it for the screenplay)

    Oh yeah, I would buy this in a nanosecond, a superb time travel flick, nice acting, clever story 'HG Wells vs Jack the Ripper' and a sumptuous score by Miklos Rozsa is the icing on the cake.
    A 1979 SF classic.
    This movie was released in Panavision and Dolby Stereo.

    I have this LD and love it. Will buy the dvd if it ever comes out (and of course, only if it's OAR).

    Yes! We need this movie on DVD - provided that it is a decent edition, meaning anamorphic OAR and some good extras you know, the way Warner Bros. used to releas movies. I have no interest in a modern-day Warner Bros. "It's a piece of junk but it's the best we're going to give you" version.
    Regards,
    Joe

    I'd buy this one too. Mary Steenburgen's best role to date and it shows off Malcolm MacDowell's range very well.

    I'd love a release of this title as well.
    However, I'm not sure that right now is the best time for the HTF to be asking any favors of WB! [​IMG]
