Time Machine in Steven Spielberg's Gremlins!
Time Machine appears in a science convent shown in the 1984 Steven Spielberg
film Gremlins. If you roll over the image with the arrow you
can see the Time Machine disappear in the future! If you click on the
image, you will enlarge it.
picture quality is poor, due to the fact that the image is taken from
a video recorded from a TV-channel, and not from an original DVD-movie.
Also the image is made of two parts, left and right, combined together.
In the film you can never see the inventor speaking with his wife and
the Time Machine at the same time. This scene appears after the scene
with the wife making gingerbread men and having problem answering the
cordless telephone invented by her husband.
more trivia: the robot on the left is Robbie the Robot from the 1956
Fred McLeod Wilcox film Forbidden Planet.
or rectangular quadrangles? Four or six rows of quadrangles?
in United Kingdom drew my attention to the shape and number of the yellow
quadrangles on the rear side of the 1960 Time Machine. He sent me this
picture where Bob Burns’ friends are unloading the rescued time machine,
which clearly shows 4 rows of square quadrangles on the back of the
generator module. But a 1970 MGM auction photo and a hand scetch
shows six rows of rectangle quadrangles...

from Forbidden Planet (1956). It is found in the Epsilon Eridiani
5 did only one time travel story, and it was extremely well planned
out. The first hint of it was in the pilot episode, we find "The
Great Machine" 2/3rds of the way through the first season, but
no one will tell what it does. We specifically find out time travel
is involved around episode 20 of the first year, but it's not until
a year or so later we find out "The Great Machine" is a time
machine tied to what happened in episode 20. Then we're 2/3rds of the
way through the third season when the whole time-travel story is resolved.

This was spotted by the SF-writer Kevin Long in Mayfield,
