Yes, I would buy a Blu-ray edition too. I saw the "The Time Machine" when it was first released in 1960 (as an 11-year old) :rolleyes:. The thrill of peering into the VERY distance future (802,701) still makes me smile and contemplate it all. Aside from the out-dated effects (great back then), the music (Russell Garcia), the wonderful machine, the cast (Rod Taylor, Alan Young, Yvette Mimieux, Sebastian Cabot, ...) and the dialog still hold their own. If you're a real fan, be sure to visit: ******************

I also saw this when first released, same age! Put me down for a copy.

One of my childhood matinee favorites ever, and an outstanding film in every respect.  Count me IN.

Count me in too. Rod Taylor,check Yvette Mimieux,check Yvette Mimieux check oops,hell ,those gams man,Anne Francis in Forbidden planet had nothing on her. Not to mention that great Jean Harlow-type platinum blonde and face. I also saw this and it had a tremendous impact on my childhood bacause i could hardly grasp at the concept of someone going to the year 802.701. things that definitely scared me as a kid the flying monkeys from OZ The green slime monster sounds Mrs.Julien my 5th grade teacher and MORLOCKS !! i keep seeing that dvd with the extras and thinking the same thing,when on Bluray ? Oh and another thing that really sent disturbing shivers along my spine. That blasted citywide alarm sound (i refer to it as the nuclear alarm ) when he meets the son of David Filby. I take it everyone in here has seen this episode of The Big bang theory.One of the biggest laughs from the audience i 've heard in recent years. And you must see Rod Taylor in the Twilight zone classic episode entitled And when the sky was opened.Absolutely worth every second of the 22 minutes.

Yeah, she's a major cutie in the film.

things that definitely scared me as a kid the flying monkeys from OZ The green slime monster sounds Mrs.Julien my 5th grade teacher and MORLOCKS !!

For me, it was the scene where the dead Morlock becomes a skeleton. Skeletons scared me a lot back then.

I have the DVD, and it's marvelous. I'll double dip on this for sure. (I was 10 when it hit theaters, and loved it then, too)

BWAHAHAHAHAHA Radioman970, you owe me a keyboard and milk for my chocolate milk. I wonder when this pic was taken cause to my eye she looks like Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface time.

It would be nice to see a blu-ray double bill from Warner with both the 1960 and 2002 version.

The remake is from Dreamworks/Paramount so we'll have to beg them to do it. I remember reading about how they cut quite a bit of the moon-crashing-to-the-Earth sequence because of 9/11 - I'd love to see the complete version on Blu. The 1960 original has always been one of my favorites. As pointed out by another poster the distant-future scenes were one of the highlights of the film for me, as brief as they were. I've never read the book but I understand that there's a longer section dedicated to the distant future in the book?
 

RIP Roberto Gomez Bolanos.

The original is probably in my top 10 most-wanted titles on blu-ray. Day 1 purchase for me!

This may go to small claims, because SHE is more to blame! LOL! :P

Blind buy from me I own it on NTSC LD & DVD!!! but think it would need some work on BD. IMO the 2002 remake was very poor due to casting & the removal of the moon crashing into earth FX (directed by Simon Wells who is HG Wells great-grandson!!!)

Oh...I thought the redo was okay. I kind of enjoyed it. Had some nice visuals. Didn't compare to others like the one with Taylor and Time After Time.
