Hi all,
I am working on an inventory of all the black and white promotional images edited for The Time Machine (1960) by George Pal.
You can go see it here: https://www.morcki.com.
I'm starting to get a nice bunch of photos. Now I'm stuck in my research, so I'm offering a big reward for whoever can show me a photo that doesn't already exist in my inventory (set reference, makeup or wardrobe still, off-camera picture, on-set acting photo, etc).
Please go take a look and tell me. Thank you in advance.  ;)

Thank you Mike for your welcome. I wanted to do it as soon as you wrote but I preferred to wait a few weeks before replying to you, in order to see how many visitors would be interested, if not hooked, by my reward proposition. But my expectations are not rewarded! Maybe this attempt of thread is too specialized, too restrictive... I like very much what I've seen on your site(s) and things you've done. You make me think you're some kind of the Ackermonster reincarnation... Did you take a look at my site? If you did, what do you think of it? I'm near to need some support... :-\ All the best to you  :)

Yes, it is an impressive collection! I doubt that I've seen 5% of those b/w stills. Those color set stills are beautiful! I probably haven't seen many of them, either, but the images are familiar from watching the movie.

Thanks for your feedback. Indeed the color images are very close to the film.
But there are very few that have been produced for the promotion of the movie.

As we are in this forum devoted especially to vintage monsters,
here's a rather rare scene picture of the Morlocks from the year 802.701.

And here's another one that, rather than being a publicity portrait, could come from William Tuttle's makeup
department and shows a makeup test.

Great group shot! The Morlocks have that unmistakable Tuttle look!  :)

Not quite there, yet.
