Today in Movie History: August 31

It’s a very quiet day today, which makes it a good day for a little gem: Nicholas Meyer’s Time After Time, which posits the notion that H.G. Wells (Malcolm McDowell) built a time machine and pursued Jack the Ripper (David Warner) to then-contemporary 1970’s San Francisco. It’s a hoot, especially with two old pros like theseĀ in the lead, and as a way to close out the dog days of August, you could do a lot worse. It opened today in 1979.
