Meyer II Part 2: Time After Time.
Following years as a successful author, Nicholas Meyer finally made the jump to film directing with Time After Time. The movie features Malcolm McDowell as H.G. Wells, who must use his time machine to chase Jack the Ripper, played by David Warner, into modern day San Francisco.
This week, Max and Mike are joined again by Ripperologist Augie Aleksy of Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore in Forest Park, IL. We discuss who Jack the Ripper may have been, H.G. Wells’s views of the future, the similarities between Time After Time and The Voyage Home, and whether to use your time machine to go to the future or the past.
