Goofs

Future time traveler Georgia Crawford disguises herself and tries to blend in in the old west of 1886 by wearing a cavalry dress uniform. Despite the fact that she looks obviously female and in 1886 it was far more probable to see an adorable little boy in the US army than a woman. In 1886 it was totally illegal to enlist a woman, so the only ones in the army would be those who could pass as men. And though a law of 1864 gave heavy penalties for enlisting boys under 16, it may have often been ignored. In one case, a man and his two sons enlisted as musicians in 1870 and the ages of the sons were recorded as 14 and 11 - the younger boy was actually 9 - so that recruiting officer was not afraid the ignore the lower age limit.

Clever time travel ...... a must see for Kinski fans ...................
12 August 2011 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

The fast moving and clever time travel plot is greatly enhanced by the presence of the duster clad Klaus Kinski. He has a lot of screen time, along with a fine performance by William Devane. After his wife and boy are killed in a car wreck, Devane purchases an old western trunk, which contains the intriguing 1886 photograph, that sets the story in motion. A chase ensues across 100 years to reverse history, and the tale never falters. One memorable scene involves Kinski entering a fence protected compound. The film holds interest throughout, and the ending is very satisfying. I bought "Timestalkers" because I am a big fan of both Klaus Kinski and William Devane. I was not disappointed. - MERK
