Pop culture eternal
H. G. Wells's novel The Time Machine has been filmed at least twice. The first version, with Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux in the starring roles, was released in 1960. The story was again made into a movie in 2002. This version starred Guy Pierce and Samantha Mumba. If you listen to the second movie carefully, you'll hear a character mention the first one!
