About The Time Travelers

In his only TFH commentary, the late Ib Melchior shares some backstage info on the making of this lesser-known but diverting sci fi fantasy that sports one of the most cleverly edited climaxes in the genre. That’s Forry Ackerman, editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, as one of the technicians transforming a circle into a square.

The Time Travelers can be seen online in its entirety here.
