The Time Travel scene from Time Flies


I just found this on YouTube - a fifteen-minute extract from the 1944 film Time Flies starring Tommy Handley, which includes some elements which are also found in "An Unearthly Child", the first episode of Doctor Who, from 19 years later. Note bemused police, four people unwittingly transported back in time, collapsing incapacitated to the floor as they go at around 11:00 in. Note also that Evelyn Dall is far better than Handley, the ostensible star.
