I am looking for the name of a movie from about 1974 with time travel and an underground city

Basically what I remember is a time travel movie where the actors step through a window to get to their destination and back. I also remember they go to an underground city where I think there are slaves and the main characters lead them out of captivity. I remember them walking along a path that is underground and is a ledge along a wall. Also, I seem to recall fights with the bad guys and arms are literally torn from the bad guy''s shoulders. I am thinking the movie was 1972 to 1975

I'm coming up with various possibilities. The Time Travelers, The Time Tunnel, Beneath the Planet of the Apes... not quite the same time period, but maybe.

I agree with one of those:

"The Time Travelers" (1964)
From IMDb:
A team of scientists are trying to develop a view screen into the future. What they in fact get is a portal, and they soon find themselves on the other side, 127 years into the future when the portal collapses. The Earth of the future is barren and they are soon attacked by mutated humans but rescued by a group of scientists who are building a spaceship to take them to a new planet. They learn that much of Earth was destroyed as the result of a nuclear war. When it's determined that the visitors from the past cannot be included in the planned voyage, they work furiously to rebuild the portal and return to their own time before departure day. Meanwhile, always under the threat of attack from the mutants , friendships are formed and they learn of life in the future including the use of robots for menial tasks.
