I was watching Time After Time the other night and caught a glimpse of something soon to be changed forever:
The film was released on August 31, 1979. Just over two months later, on November 4th, the US Embassy in Tehran would be stormed and hostages would be taken. Just over a year later, on January 26th, 1981, the bank (probably the one in the film, though maybe there were/are multiple branches in Sanfranciscostan) was bombed.
Time After Time is good fun:
My name is H.G. Wells. I came here in a time machine of my own construction. I am pursuing Jack the Ripper, who escaped into the future in my machine.
