Time Machine chair
A few years back, Frank Thetonia and I had the opportunity to purchase the very original TM chair - we tried, but it was too pricey. Even if we did, Bob Burns wasn't interested in putting it back on the machine! It must be remembered that Bob's beloved friend, and TM chair replicator, Tom Sherman, passed away with cancer. I don't think Bob wishes to tamper with Tom's wonderful work - even though it's inaccurate. Like John Martin, we would have like for Bob to have restored the machine back to its very original condition - but even Bob will admit it was hastily done in order to use it in one of his Halloween parties.
You know, for the longest time, the chair was a mystery. It was missing
from the machine when Bob rescued it. Bob didn't even know what it was
- he thought it was a prop made by MGM especially for the machine (hear
his comment on the Journey
Back). No one knew until my friend John Rosa came along, surmised
it was indeed a barber's chair and bought one to prove it. He paid nearly
$7,000 for it! John's discovery is documented on Don
Coleman's website. No one knew what the chair was until then - I know,
because I asked everyone in Hollywood at the time. No one had a clue -
not Don, not Harvey Mayo, none of the gang... until the cat was let out
of the bag to me by John. Here's an example:
In the end, Sandra, you'll have the best documentation on the entire net revealing the Time Machine's original chair - which was a mystery in itself.
This means a lot of more information and pictures about the Time Machine chair is upcoming soon! Wait and see...
