The Movie: Time After Time (1979)
What Is It?: Malcolm McDowell is H.G. Wells, who uses his own Time Machine to pursue David Warner as Jack the Ripper from 1893 London to 1979 San Francisco. There, Wells meets kooky Mary Steenbergen and pure, air-headed delight ensues.
Why Today?: Today is Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day. I’m not imaginative enough to make this shit up.
