Robots Robots Robots
7:15pm Thursday, August 5


Film scholar and archivist Dennis Nyback returns to the Cinema with five mostly madcap short films about
those emblems of 20th Century modernity: Robots. These mechanical creatures were omnipresent in science
fiction, although in real life they mostly found gainful employment as factory workers. Techno-Crazy (1933) An Ub
Iwerks cartoon where Flip the Frog reads a Technocracy magazine and builds a robot that runs amok.  The
Inventors (1933) Two radio entertainers based their career on spoofing Technocracy. They were Stoopnagle and
Budd. Here they star in an Educational Films two-reel short where they make a robot that runs amok in a girls
school.  Robotics (1979) A Hearst Metrotone News report on modern robotics.  Robotics: Issac Azimov's
Mechanical Man (1972) Legendary author Isaac Azimov talks about the history and development of science fiction.
