Publicity and Set Stills of the 1755th MGM's Release
We never stop seeking new pictures or info related
to The Time Machine movie. Here are our latest discoveries.
Here are three unpublished scene stills we found lately. They do not have a reference number, so you can see them on the Part 2 page.
Taken on June 17, 1959, this scene photograph closely resembles image #1755-42 although the field is much wider and allows us to see the lighting ramps of the sound stage. If additional proof of the authorship of The Time Machine promotional photos was still needed, it is provided by this outstanding image: the black info bar indeed bears the signature of Frank Shugrue, the photographer assigned by MGM during the shooting of the film.
Taken on the set of The Time Machine, this portrait of Yvette Mimieux has been found by Don Coleman in American Youth Magazine (March-April 1960), just like X?G image. It is part of the same series of portraits of the actress in a bathrobe that we show on the Off-Camera page.
Together with Don Coleman, we have gathered all the information available and compiled the most comprehensive credit list that ever exists for The Time Machine movie.
Here is a new scene still discovered
by Don Coleman
in a vintage Dutch press book.
It is one of the
very few promotional photographs
where Doris Lloyd
(Mrs. Watchett) appears.
On the information bar of these three large-format transparencies (8"x10"), you can see the production number 1755 assigned by MGM to The Time Machine. For once, these promotional photographs were not taken by Frank Shugrue since the photographer's name code, AGER, is that of Virgil Apger (1903-1994) who was also long employed by the studios. MGM was betting heavily on its new discovery Yvette Mimieux and called on Apger, well known for his portraits of stars.
Here are six unpublished scene stills we found in November 2021. They do not have a reference number, so you can see them on the Part 2 page.
According to the collector from whom we recently acquired a copy of this photo of Yvette Mimieux, it would have been taken by a private photographer on the film set of The Time Machine. If the hairstyle and make-up of the actress do indeed evoke Weena, as in other portraits of the character, the owner of the original print was unfortunately not able to give us the name of this other photographer who would have been supposedly present during the shooting alongside the staff photographer.
For a long time, we had thought this image found on the Internet was complete.
Not at all! You can now see the entire photograph on this page and know everything about its origin.
The Morlocks cavern is engulfed in fire at the end of the battle. If you look closely, you can see what is likely the dummy of a dead Morlock lying on the ramp behind the flames. This unpublished and incredibly rare photo is from Don Coleman's Collection.
Difficult to describe this strange and unique image. Is it a surviving Morlock trying to escape from the battle? This unpublished photograph comes from the Don Coleman Collection of The Time Machine (1960) original stills.
