** James Filby's fate. In the space of five minutes, George watched his best friend's infant son grow int a young man with a lot of promise, then become an old man who likely died along with everyone else when London is hit by a nuke. And it goes FromBadToWorse when Weena's comment causes him realise that Filby's warning to "[[IronicEcho Hide until the all clear]]" has become twisted into the means in which the Morlocks have [[MoreThanMindControl conditioned]] the Eloi to walk blissfully to the slaughter.

** George's HeroicBSOD. He starts by checking out the books on a shelf, which crumble on his grip. He starts with a [[TranquilFury dead]] [[DramaticDeadpan calm]] "Yes. These books tell me all about you (the Eloi being [[BrainlessBeauty Brainless Beauties]])" and then goes into [[RantInducingSlight a screaming tirade]] at the Eloi about how their world is horrible (from his point of view) and how he would prefer to go back in time and die alongside the rest of humanity "who are MEN! MEN who THINK! MEN who LIVE!".

Added DiffLines:

* InterspeciesRomance: The beginnings of romance between George and Weena might suggest this in light of some interpretations which posit the Eloi as being just as much an evolved post-human species as the Morlocks, in spite of the fact that only the Morlocks look visibly non-human.

* TearJerker: [[WorldWarOne Filby senior's ultimate fate]]. It's made even worse in a short film done for a DVD release of the movie in which an older George returns and meets Filby right before he leaves for the front. He tries to warn him, expecting to be disbelieved. Filby does believe him... [[HonorBeforeReason and he goes anyway.]]

--->"They made a face mask of me to fashion all that rubber stuff -- the old age pieces -- all around. On the morning of that shot, I got made up by Bill Tuttle, and as I left, he gave me a little jar of glue, and he said, 'That's in case it comes off,' and I said, 'Well, won't you be on the set?," and he said, 'No, the budget can't afford a makeup man on the set.' So, I had this jar of glue, and that was at 6:00 or 7: 00 in the morning. Well, they didn't get around to shooting that scene until late afternoon, and by then I could feel bits of my face falling off, so I'd get the glue out and stick it back on again, but by the time they actually got around to shooting that scene, it was about 4:30 or 5: 00. So George said, 'Alan, I can't do any close-up's because I can almost see the glue brush strokes on your eyes.' So, if you remember the scene, it was done in a two shot all of the time. There were no close-up of this old man because bits of the face were peeling off."
