The future was so much better the way it used to be.

hmm. She might be considered to be rather attractive.

Bubs: genius

verification word: opinges: metal bits that allow doors to swing open, but also tell you what they think of you, your wardrobe and how well or poorly you opened the door.

One of the earliest mini skirts on film. Many sci-fi movies/TV shows would follow the trend of putting short skirts on space age gals (notably Star Trek). Thank you Miss Francis.

This is why there were Oedipal Id Issues.

Pic 1 - Robots make excellent personal groomers. Just keep them away from moisture, and they're okay.
Pic 2 - Robots can make anyone the next Fred Astairs or Ginger Rogers.
Pic 3 - Phone call for you, madam. A Mr. Clinton says he has an internship for you.
Pic 4 - Robots are perfect for the life of leisure, as we see her being fanned to cool off after a long day of shooting.
Pic 5 - Order today, and you'll get what's pictured here (female not included)
Pic 6 - It's sad, but I've never seen this, even though I've heard the song "Science Fiction Double Feature" by both the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast and by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, so I know Anne Francis starred in it.

Bubs-
Agreed!

Arkonbey-
I always wondered what opinges were...;)

Gilligan-
I did not remember that! Yes bless you Miss Francis!

Wiec?-
Gosh I know! It's like she's work with radioactive materials or something.

Thought-
Hmmm...yeah...and robot fetishists...

Anon-
I soooo want to see a Robot in a top hat with a Ginger Rogers dance routine!

Every time I look at these pictures I get Science Fiction Double Feature running through my head! Haven't heard the Me First version but I'll have to check it out :)
