Publicity and Set Stills of the 1755th MGM's Release
Part 4 : Set References
The following images are technical photos that were used as references for the film sets and were probably not intended to be shown. All of these images were taken by Frank Shugrue, the still photographer assigned to The Time Machine. These few images are shown here approximately in the order of the film scenes, not in the chronological order of the filming that had started at the end of May 1959 and was completed at the beginning of July 1959.
Though, this is only a sample of the numerous set photographs taken by Shugrue, and you can see many more. In 2021, Don Coleman, who has gathered probably the richest collection of still photographs related to George Pal's masterpiece, has decided to commemorate in his own way the anniversary of its production. The images have been unveiled day after day from May 25 to July 1st, each date corresponding to a date of the filming in 1959. This unique series of more than 70 photographs, that had been taken exactly 62 years earlier, starts with the interior scenes that Frank Shugrue took on the set of the Time Traveler's cottage, located in stage 8 at MGM Lot 1 in Culver City, California. Go visit The Time Machine Project, and be sure that you'll time travel in admiring these images that for the most part have never been shown until now.
