I loved the original 1979 Malcolm McDowell movie. He played HG Wells who used his Time Machine to propel from 1890s London to 1979 San Fransisco to chase after the clever and evil Jack The Ripper. It does a perfect balance of comedy, Wells has a harder time adapting then Jack, with suspense and a splash of romance. Its an underrated time travel movie that should be watched by all.

Here is the trailer to the original movie, it does not do the movie justice. Anyone else love the original movie? I am so looking forward to the remake series. Shocked they would remake a near 40 year old movie. I never read the novel, any good?
