Now that you make me think of it, wasn't Collusus, the Forbin Project
the first movie to teach us that we shouldn't make machines we can't
turn off?  You wouldn't make such a machine because you saw the Forbin
Project.  (I'm not claiming the idea was completely original.
Frankenstein seems like an obvious predecesor.  But it seems the one
that brought the point home to computers.)
