I saw this as a child, I watched this in the 1970s or early 80s. A woman tries to call a friend or family member on the phone, but the person who answers basically says, “Sorry, wrong number.” The woman is perplexed, and goes to a large urban library (New York city?) to try to get more information — maybe looking in a phone book or city directory. She talks to a librarian and realizes it’s not the year she thinks it is — she is trapped in another time and begins to scream.
It’s black and white. I used to think it was the ending of a movie, but in recent years I have wondered if it was an episode of a show like the “Outer Limits” or “Twilight Zone” — and yet my searches of plot summaries have not yielded anything.
I believe it was a movie. We had local tv stations that showed old movies. It took place in the 1950s or 60s. The library had those big card catalogs. The woman was by herself when she ran in there from a city street in an urban area. I think she made the call from a pay phone. She got stuck in another time; she didn’t travel there in a machine. It was similar to The Twilight Zone, where something is out of a character’s control.
