Colussus, the Forbin Project

When I was a kid, I recall seeing a movie called Colussus, the Forbin Project. It was a 1970 blockbuster that offered a startling look at a future dominated by computers.

Its plot was basically that of War Games -- before there was a War Games -- or Terminator's "SkyNet", decades ahead of those movies.

Here's the original movie poster, which really doesn't do the story justice:

Check out something interesting: note the logo of the corporation that manufactured Colussus (above the inexplicable firing squad):

Now check out the logo of America Online:

Now, that's just freaky.
