Alan Young goes "straight" for the first time in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's "The Time Machine." The well known comedian plays a dramatic role as Rod Taylor's friend in the George Pal science-fiction drama, based on H.G. Wells' novel of a man's flight through time. In his new role he rums the gamut of ages from seventeen to seventy. Producer-director George Pal hit upon a clever way to illustrate the pasage of time —1899 to 802,701 A.D.— in his new color production for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, "The Time Mchine,"ed on H.G.Wells' novel of a man who invents a machine that takes him into the future . The picture shows a mannequin in a department stoe window at various ages in the respective fashions of the times.
