The first commercial electricity was in late 1889. As such, the time machine builder would not have had any access to electricity let alone the lights and fancy electrodes. See more »

Learn Your History
18 May 2019 | by dejeanlawSee all my reviews

Though this movie is primarily a religious movie, it also involves history. This movie would work if the protagonist, Carlisle, were from 1875, but being that he's from 1890, the film-makers made two glaring mistakes. First he acts like he never heard of baseball, when Major League Baseball has been around since 1876. Maybe he had never been to a live baseball game, and had never heard a radio broadcast (as that was invented in 1895), but he would certainly understand what baseball was. Now football or basketball could have worked. And then he acts like a car is a completely foreign and unknowable invention, when the first car race was also held in the late 1870s. Though the car did not become a household item until the late 1920s and wasn't mass produced until 1913, as a learned man who read newspapers, he would certainly have understood what a car was and what baseball was.
