Starring: Raymond Massey, Ralph Richardson
It is an exciting idea that famed science fiction author H.G. Wells would be issued to write an original screenplay for a motion picture. Author of such major English science fiction classics including The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Invisible Man, and The War of the Worlds, Wells had inspired many imagination filled filmmakers, but here an original screenplay which was inspired a couple of his smaller works would be written, telling a chilling tale of what the possible future people of London were looking at in 1936. Eerily Wells would of predict a few chilling facts that would actually come to be inspired by the then modern events of Europe, including the coming of World War II, and the idea that people would one day war with each other over the commodity of oil. Overall the story would share that the world is cyclical with the rise and fall of civilizations, but most of all this movie brought wonderful visuals by a very visual director, present for audiences with a world of what could be.
