Description: The American Cinemathque presents this double bill as part of their series, “Wrinkle in Time: The Best of Time-Travel Films.” THE TIME MACHINE (1960) is the classic adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel, this sci-fi gem follows Rod Taylor as he rockets through space-time to discover a humanity that has divided into two violently warring sects. Winner of Best Special Effects at the 1960 Oscars. BEYOND THE TIME BARRIER (1960, MGM/UA, 75 min. Dir. Edgar G. Ulmer). High-testosterone pilot Robert Clarke pushes his jet past 5,000 mph — and finds himself catapulted into a crumbling, plague-ridden Utopia of Tomorrow. Shot at a futuristic exhibit at the Texas State Fairgrounds (along with THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN), TIME BARRIER co-stars Ulmer’s daughter, Arianne Ulmer, as the villainous Markova.
