the Yesterday Machine (1963)

never heard of this movie before. it's low budget and a little slow movie (so much talking) but the characters are fun.  it starts out with Howie and Margie having car trouble and going to an old house to get some help.  something odd is happening...

there is a light on!

wait, wait, before you start thinking about a different movie, that's pretty much the end of the similarities. Howie gets shot by some Civil War soldiers and Margie disappears.

most of the rest of the movie is Sandra, Margie's sister, and a reporter looking for her.  what they find is an evil Nazi trying to use a time machine to bring back Hitler so they can win WWII. 

it's a pretty fun 80 minutes of low budget goodness.  the acting ranges from bad to passable, but I've seen worse in major movies.  too bad the picture quality isn't better, but it's nice to be able to see it at all.

I think this is one of those locally-produced cheapies, much like Manos. It's a minor miracle when they are any good at all!
