Hello. It sounds like you're describing "The Creation of the Humanoids" (1962). "In the distant future, mankind has created a race of robots, who are becoming more intelligent all the time. While the Flesh and Blood League tries to remind the robots of their underclass place in society, a scientist has developed a way to transfer human memories into a robot body." source: RottenTomatoes.com: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/creation_of_the_humanoids/about.php?rtp=1 Also see this review: "The Creation of the Humanoids is the most sophisticated exploration of intelligent robots in human society to hit the big screen until Blade Runner (82). Nuclear war has eliminated 92% of humanity. The humanoids, robots developed from pre-war technologies, are mass-produced to help rebuild urban centers and take up other slack... The Order?s Captain Cragis (Don Megowan) uncovers a robot plot to seed the population with the R-96 (just 4% off fully human)?humanoids implanted with the memories of the recently dead, and practically indistinguishable from people. He eventually discovers a Robot Central Committee for the Preservation of Mankind?" http://www.worldlyremains.com/Humanoids.html Also see this newsgroup message: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&c2coff=1&selm=3t91ph%24ltf%40apollo.it.luc.edu Also see the Internet Movie Database entry: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055872/ Videos on Ebay: http://search.ebay.com/creation-humanoids_W0QQsokeywordredirectZ1QQfromZR8 ------- search strategy: imdb.com, plot search: androids I hope this is the movie that you had in mind. If not, please request clarification. Thanks.
