Did You Know?


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 »

Artemus Gordon: By the way, what is your name?
Jim West: James. James West.
Artemus Gordon: How do you do, James? It's an odd thing, but I have this ridiculous feeling that you and I have done all this before. Isn't that ridiculous? Well, it was fun while it lasted, wasn't it, James?
Jim West: It's not over yet. I've gone to too much trouble to find you.
Artemus Gordon: You, have too much trouble to find me.

Presto, Time Changes

This is a bit off beat even for the Wild Wild West. Ricardo Montoban guests as a Magician who makes Artie disappear from a magic stage show and takes him on a murky trip through time back to the Civil War. The time he takes Artie back to is when he lost his legs.

West has to find his way back through a murky doorway that Artie is taken through. This gives the episode a murky feel as the special effects department has the fog machine working over time here. While Montoban who at near this same time was playing Khan on Star Trek, is not featured quite as much here, he still adds his considerable skills to a pretty imaginative script.

The goal here is to kill US Grant & win the war for the South as well as getting back his legs. Time travel is done in Wild West style.
