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 »

The man who could control time

Arte vanishes during a stage magician's - Abu The Magnificent - act. The only clue is a sabre bearing the initials 'N.B.V.'. In Vicksberg, he locates the sabre's owner. one 'Colonel Noel Bartley Vautrain' ( Ricardo Montalban ). He is a mastery of magic and has a room in his house that is a doorway to the Fourth Dimension, through which one can go back in time. Having used Jim and Arte as guinea pigs, the Colonel wants to go back to the Civil War before he received the injury that caused him to lose both legs. But he has another far more sinister motive - he wants to reverse the outcome of said conflict by killing General Grant...

One of the best 'W.W.W.' episodes, benefiting greatly from Montalban's smooth performance as 'Vautrain'. Like the Kenneth Branagh 'Dr.Loveless', he too is wheelchair-bound but there is none of the crass overacting that characterised Branagh's portrayal. Dianne Foster adds glamour as his niece 'Amanda'. A reviewer has mentioned Montalban's later series 'Fantasy Island' as being possibly inspired by this episode. I think a better example would be 'Time Express', a short-lived 1979 series that starred Vincent Price and Coral Browne and featured people going back in time to change their lives for the better.
