This Russian film is an adaptation of a classic Czech novel from which the term "robot" sprang. The plot centers on an inventor who creates robots to do the work of humans. His machines are stong and intelligent, but they have no souls. Soon a class struggle ensues between the displaced

human workers and the factory bosses who want to convert their operations entirely to robots. Not as interesting or as skillful as Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS, but not bad either. Quite a deviation from Capek's original play, which had no humans in it at all. Director Andreievsky is noted for having

made the first color stereoscopic film in the U.S.S.R.
