Time Flies (1944) Tommy Handley

Time travel spoof in which music hall comedians are transported to the days of Shakespeare. 


Walter Forde


Ted Kavanagh (original screenplay), J.O.C. Orton (original screenplay)


Tommy Handley, Evelyn Dall, George Moon

This has got to be one of the earliest time travel movies ever made. It's got it all, it's a comedy, it's a drama and it's science fiction, way ahead of it's time, if you excuse the pun. The special effects in the movie were few but good for 1944.  Just a bit of trivia, Tommy Handley, who stars, is featured on the cover of The Beatles' album "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".      ★★1/2
