"THE YESTERDAY MACHINE is an intentionally campy film sure to amuse all fans of vintage low budget quickie sci-fi. It's about a post-WWII German physicist (Jack Herman in an over-the-top-of-Mt.-Everest performance) who has --big-- plans. From his laboratory hidden in a Dallas area farmhouse, Prof. von Hauser hopes to restore Der Führer by conquering the 4th dimension! Meanwhile, he kidnaps a high school majorette just before the big game and the cops come looking for her.
For an extra large helping of spaced out limburger, try VCI's SCI-FI DOUBLE FEATURE: TIME WARP/WARP SPEED (featuring Adam West!).

"WOW! Some forgotten 60s films should really stay lost, but this homemade in Texas movie should have gotten released somehow - it's fairly well-done technically but the sci-fi plot about a mad scientist hoping to bring back Adolph Hitler with the aid of a time machine is wildly over-the-top, as is the performance of the actor playing the scientist. Delightful! I'd heard of the film over the years and never hoped to see it until noticing it was now on DVD. Held my interest beginning to end thanks to its earnest cast of mainly amateur actors, incredibly unlikely plot and Tim Holt(!) playing a cop. See it if you've ever loved a drum majorette!"
