Movie Quote(s):
  • George: When I speak of time, I'm speaking of the fourth dimension.
  • Filby: If that machine can do what you say it can do, destroy it, George! Destroy it before it destroys you!
  • Filby: He's got all the time in the world.
  • George: David, I've got to tell it now. While I still remember it! Filby: Relax, try to relax. You've all the time in the world. George: You're right David, that's exactly what I have. All the time in the world.
  • [last lines] Mrs. Watchett: Mister Filby, do you think he'll ever return? Filby: One cannot choose but wonder. You see, he has all the time in the world.
Movie Trivia:
  • Director George Pal was a close friend of fellow animator Walter Lantz, ever since Lantz did some cut-rate Woody Woodpecker work for Pal's Destination Moon (1950). As tribute, Pal tried to include Woody Woodpecker references in all his subsequent films. In the scenes where the Eloi are having a good time, every so often you can distinctly hear the "Woody Woodpecker" laugh.
  • Also, during the air raid scene, as all the people rush into the shelter a little girl crossing the street stops to pick something up that she dropped. When she does, you can quickly see she picks up a small Woody Woodpecker figure
  • The plaque on the control panel of time machine reads "Manufactured by H George Wells."
  • The "lava" in the volcano scene in downtown was actually oatmeal with orange and red food coloring spilled onto a platform and slowly moved down the miniature set.
  • When George arrives in the year 802701 his time machine reads the date of October 12th. So George arrives into a "New World" on the anniversary of Columbus' first reaching the "New World" of the Americas.
