In 2087, the USA has become a totalitarian country thanks to Professor Sigmund Marx' (Eduard Franz) invention of radio-telepathy, which revolutionized communication but also mind control. so a bunch of rebels decide to send Garth (Michael Rennie), a cyborg, back to 1966 to convince Professor Marx to not make his invention public.

Thing is, Garth doesn't find the Professor right away but only his assistant Sharon (Karen Steele), and to convince her to help him, he has to use radio telepathy - ironically the very thing he tries to prevent from coming into being -, plus there are two so-called tracer agents (Dan Van Sickel, Troy Melton), also cyborgs from the future, hot on his heels, hell-bent on killing him.

Plenty of chases ensue, and somehow Sharon's colleague Doctor Zellar (Warren Stevens) also gets sucked into the proceedings, before Garth can finally get his hands on the Professor and persuade him to take a trip to the future with him ... but by that time, the tracer agents have taken Sharon hostage and start to torture her to lure Garth into a trap, as Garth, though emontionless by conditioning, has fallen in love with Sharon and she with him as well. Ultimately though, Garth manages to save Sharon and take the Professor to the future ... upon which time as such takes a different turn, and Garth as such seizes to exist, thus his mission never happened in the first place ... and suddenly Sharon and Doctor Zellar find themselves in Professor Marx' lab with no recollections of what has happened, along with a few army bigshots, to await Professor Marx' presentation of radio telepathy.

But Professor Marx has obviously somehow found enlightenment and he refuses to share his invention with the world after all, even though it is his lifetime achievement ...

And in the end - well, Doctor Zellar gets the girl - Sharon that is (who has of course lost all her memories of Garth).

 

A cyborg going back in time to alter history ... yes, this film anticipates Terminator by almost two decades, and despite its obviously low budget and lack of special effects, it isn't a bad film either, a rather thought through examination of science fiction mainstays like time travel and mind control that still includes enough action to be entertaining, and that makes the most of its scarce sets (including a real Western ghost town).

That said, the film is no masterpiece and on a purely aesthetic level it doesn't stand the time too well, but it's interesting to say the least.
