I choose The Time Machine, by H. G. Wells, for my movie book
comparison. H. G. Wells copyrighted it in 1895. Rod Taylor and Yvette
Mimieux played the main characters in the movie. It was directed by
George Pal and opened in the year of 1960.
There were two main characters in the book and the movie. One of them
was the time traveler, George, whom Rod Taylor played. And the other one
was Weena, the child like woman that George the time traveler saves.
Yvette Mimieux played her.
Both the characters in the movie and the book where very similar in a
lot of ways but I think that George was more action packed in the movie
and a little bit more aggressive. And Weena seemed to be a lot quieter
in the book then in the movie and you could understand her more in the
movie then in the book.
The Time Machine starts out with the time traveler trying to explain
the time machine and how it works to four other science guys. He goes
on about four dimensions and how nobody thinks that there is a fourth
dimension and how there is only three. He goes on describing the fourth
dimension to them and then he demonstrates how the time machine works.
The whole time he is demonstrating it the other four scientists don't
know what to think. And then it disappears into thin air. All of his
friends can't believe it and leave. Except one of his friends, David
Filby a good friend of his. He tries to talk him into not going through
with this whole time travel notion, and then he leaves.
The time traveler descides to try it anyways and goes into his
laboratory. The first thing he does is sets his pocket watch to the same
time as the clock on his desk and then he starts to proceed with the
experiment. He gets in his time machine and starts it up and travels
into the future. He doesn't travel too far but just enough to see if it
works and it does. He decides to travel father and this time he
travels through both World War 1 and World War 2. And finds out the
world is all most destroyed by war.
He finds himself trapped under layers and layers of molten rock and he
