H. G. Wells' The Time Machine (1960, directed by George Pal, starring Rod Taylor. G) A turn-of-the-century Englishman invents a time machine and travels into the distant future, making stops along the way. He witnesses the progress made by his society as well as its failures until he reaches a point so far into the future that humans have split into two different races. The Eloi are a primitive, peaceful, surface-dwelling race, while the Morlocks are an industrialized subterranean race who prey upon the Eloi. The inventor must face the Morlocks to regain his stolen time machine and return home to tell his tale of warning to his waiting dinner guests.
