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) Posted Image

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? Posted Image

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) Regards, ------------------ Ken McAlinden Livonia, MI USA

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.

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. Rob ------------------ "That suits me down to the ground."

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! Posted Image
