Need help from a sci-fi encyclopedic mind!

3 posts in this topic



So there's this B sci-fi movie made in the 50's. Of course I don't know the name of the movie. TCM never show it. The first time I saw it was back in the 60's on a BW TV. But the movie could be in color.

But this is the setup: There are several people holed up in an high-rise guy got a gun keeping folk at bay.....meanwhile there's a robot patrolling deserted streets.....anyone it finds on the streets....he zaps em with some type of beam... similar to Gort in "The Day The Earth Stood Still." Towards the end of the movie for some reason, the guy terrorizing people in the apartment with the gun turns hero and is on the deserted streets and he gets zapped by the robot. That's all I can recall. I only saw this flick maybe 3x...the most. So c'mon all you Sci-fi encyclopedic minds out there...HELP A BROTHER SCI-FI FAN OUT!!! And maybe...just maybe....I'll raise a shrine in your honor.....
