What distinguishes man from machine and what connects them? Is a machine not preferable? This nerd movie pur sang, contains all current thoughts on singularity. The creation of the humanoids (1962) was far ahead of its time.
Drive-in movies were made for horny youngsters and should be dirt-cheap. This also implied that anything was possible as long as the poster looked good. The creation of the humanoids is a real movie of ideas and therefore a complete surprise. Not only was the film far ahead of more recent productions with the same theme such as Blade Runner, but it also takes matters a lot further than most. Its just that this film is so little known, because otherwise it would probably be one of the favourites of the men from The Big Bang Theory!
