Promotional Information

George Pal's adaptation of H D Wells seminal science fiction novel is more of a cult movie than a classic, notable for its special effects and model work. However, Forshaw makes a compelling case for its reassesment... by the end he has rekindled the reader's desire to see it again, and that is surely the primary purpose of such a book.' - Good Book Guide
