Things to Come (1936)

Things to Come is one of my most favourite motion pictures of all time. It is a Wellsian future history based on Wells’ 1933 novel ‘The Shape of Things to Come’ . The full text of the novel can be downloaded from Project Gutenberg in Australia.

Things to Come is a 1936 British science fiction film, produced by Alexander Korda and directed by William Cameron Menzies. The screenplay was written by H. G. Wells and is a loose adaptation of his own 1933 novel The Shape of Things to Come and his 1931 non-fiction work, The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind. The film stars Raymond Massey.

Christopher Frayling of the British Film Institute calls Things to Come “a landmark in cinematic design.” You can download this motion picture via Internet Archive for free because it has entered the public domain,
