The Promise of Science: Time Travel

The concept of time travel appeared early in science fiction film. Based in England, Robert Paul and H. G. Wells had plans in 1895 to build a multimedia film theater to simulate time travel, but those plans fell through. Paul did, however, go on to make several films in the nineteen-tens including How to Make Time Fly (Gunn, 167).
