Time Travelers

irwin allen century fire

(ABC, 3/19/1976, 90 mins). A pilot movie in which Irwin Allen, recycling his earlier hit series “The Time Tunnel,” has a young doctor and a research scientist, in search of a cure for a deadly epidemic, being whisked back through time to Chicago in 1871 on the eve of the infamous fire, hoping to find the physician who then had stumbled on a cure but whose records were destroyed in the conflagration. Footage from Twentieth Century-Fox’s spectacular “In Old Chicago” (1938) was incorporated into this movie, tinted in sepia to re-create the fire sequences.
