Baby boomers of a certain age may recall being entertained, back in 1965, by the latest Japanimation product at that time, a TV program called "Tobor the 8th Man," which had its origins in a manga comic in 1963. But almost a full decade before the 8th Man's initial appearance, another Tobor was thrilling baby boomers in America's movie palaces, via 1954's "Tobor the Great." In this surprisingly likable film, the elderly Prof. Nordstrom builds a mechanical simulacrum, operated telepathically; a robot designed to take the place of a human being in the first, ultrahazardous rocket voyage into space. The professor and his 11-year-old grandson, Gadge, soon become the targets of foreign spies, however, so it's a good thing that Tobor is prepared to meet ALL emergency situations! Anyway, "Tobor" is a perfect film for adults to watch with their kiddies. The film has been well directed by Lee Sholem (the man responsible for 1951's "Superman and the Mole-Men"!) and features some very competent acting (especially by Taylor Holmes as the professor and Charles Drake as his assistant) and a compact (the whole film runs only 77 minutes in length), fairly intelligent script; don't believe the wet blankets at Maltinville who claim these latter two aspects are "terrible." As far as Tobor itself is concerned, comparisons to Robby the Robot, in 1956's "Forbidden Planet," are hard to avoid. Tobor might be a taller and thus more imposing creation, which is not to say cooler looking. And lacking the power of "speech," it doesn't have 1/10 the personality of Robby. Still, it is a wholly endearing construct, and the final shot of the big galoot at the controls of Earth's first space rocket is fairly touching. In all, "Tobor" is good, lighthearted sci-fi fun, and demonstrates that a film doesn't necessarily require the resources of an Industrial Light & Magic complex to fashion a memorable robotic character. Tobor might not be Robby or R2-D2, but it sure is a good dude to have on one's side when the chips are down!

I&#39;m sure surprised to see that this film only has an overall IMDb score of 4.7--talk about a tough audience! Sure, by today&#39;s standards the film might seem dated or even quaint, but in its day it was a dandy little sci-fi yarn--and is still pretty entertaining today.<br/><br/>The film is about a really cool elderly scientist. His home is an amazing compound complete with traps and high-tech gadgets and he is working on a robot (named &#39;TOBOR&#39; in his hidden basement lab--a place even Batman would be proud to own). Charles Drake is a younger scientist of like mind who comes to work with him on TOBOR. The idea is to have a robot that can be controlled from Earth and used to safely explore space. Unfortunately, the evil Commies (though they are never explicitly called &#39;Communists&#39; in the film) want the plans for TOBOR and will do anything to get it--anything.<br/><br/>The film was obviously meant to appeal to children as well, with young Billy Chapin playing the scientist&#39;s precocious grandson--a kid who is as smart as many adult scientists. But I never found the kid as annoying or cloying as precocious kids in some movies. Oh, and by the way, Billy is Lauren Chapin&#39;s real-life brother. Fans of &quot;Father Knows Best&quot; may remember her as the youngest in the family, &#39;Kitten&#39;.<br/><br/>Overall, highly entertaining and fun despite some limitations imposed by a lower budget. Yes, the Earth does NOT revolve the wrong direction in space nor is it surrounded by space clouds! And, the stars look fake because they are all the same brightness. But, even with these minor problems, the film is well worth seeing and is among the better sci-fi films of the day. Clever and cool.

First, let me say that I am very, very sorry if this movie is not up to some reviewers&#39; standards for 50-year-old movies. I don&#39;t really think we need to compare this to &quot;Bicentennial Man&quot; (what a hunk of junk and an embarrassment for Robin Williams!) or &quot;The Iron Giant&quot; (an animated film made 45 years later with the aid of computer graphics).<br/><br/>Second, let me say that I&#39;m also sorry that this film may occasionally give the impression that there might be some negative or dangerous aspects to space travel or the space program. Other than three Apollo crew members perishing in a fire on the pad, and the near-tragedy of Apollo 13, and two space shuttle crews...but I digress.<br/><br/>This movie is about a robot and some bad guys. There&#39;s a kid, too. The bad guys lose and the kid and robot win. Plus, the robot has a neat name.<br/><br/>The end.<br/><br/>(BTW, this movie has what is by far my favorite &quot;robot driving a jeep&quot; scene of all time. This is not quite as impressive as a mad snowman driving a car, but it&#39;s pretty darn close.) Enjoy it!
