Trivia

While the notion of time as a dimension or property of space (space-time) had not yet emerged, a literary tradition of time travel was already well established, going back almost 2,500 years. The earliest known depiction of a mechanism for voluntary time travel was the 1887 novel 'El Anacronópete' by Enrique Gaspar y Rimbau. See more »

One of the top ten episodes of the series
22 June 2017 | by shaksprynSee all my reviews

Here you get a wonderfully creative, even daring script, plus a brilliant performance by the super-talented Ricardo Montalban. This is a classic episode. The plot might not please Western traditional-purists, but then so many of the episodes of this series went very far afield from all the other Westerns of the 1960's. This show was truly unique, and this episode is a prime example.
