That's why I liked "Silent Running".  As a kid I couldn't figure out how they did the `bots, until I saw a show on the production.

This era was packed with bubble-bots it seemed. Or, just a clever way to hide the human inside?

Thanks for including Rosie, that made me laugh.

 

If we inch into the Seventies I would put a bid in for Huey Dewey and Louie from "Silent Running".  I think it's also the only movie where Bruce Dern played a hero.

Rob, some of these are indeed scarry.  The Daleks especially.  One thing, though.  They actually had organic creatures in them.  They are genetically modified and placed in the "shell".  Their only goal is to "exterminate".

As for HAL, I wil always remember his last line.  "Will I dream?"

Nice slideshow Rob. The vision of the movie makers of the 50s and 60s is admirable, as the technology at that time had not been this superior to think of something like that. The robots of today's movies are even more advanced as now we have great animations, looking forward to the list of today's movie robots.
