THE WAR OF THE WORLDS
1953, Paramount, 85 min, USA, Dir: Byron Haskin

Gene Barry and Ann Robinson battle invading Martian war machines in this still amazingly visceral, comic book-style feast of apocalyptic images – one of the defining sci-fi films of the 1950s. Produced by George Pal, based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells.


THE TIME MACHINE
1960, Warner Bros., 103 min, USA, Dir: George Pal

Victorian inventor Rod Taylor is convinced that the world of the future will have solved all of the industrial age’s problems – until he journeys there in his gorgeous, kaleidoscopic Time Machine, to find a race of peaceful, cattle-like humans lorded over by subterranean Morlocks. Brilliantly adapted from H.G. Wells’ novel by producer-director George Pal. With Yvette Mimieux, Alan Young.


Screening formats: DCP (THE WAR OF THE WORLDS) and 35mm (THE TIME MACHINE)
