Gort from The Day the Earth Stood Still


Gort appeared in the 1951 Science Fiction epic, "The Day the Earth Stood Still".  This was the first big science fiction movie of its kind, and in my opinion, set the stage for robot movies to follow.  It's hard to believe that the fifties generation were almost more into science fiction than we are today.  In some cases I believe this to be true, with films like "Starship Troopers" that are based on stories written in the fifties.  Please check out the link below for a fantastic collection of facts and trivia from the movie that some believe started it all!
