This article continues this essential exploration of American culture with more probing profiles of computers on TV and in the movies.

I remember seeing this movie recently on the AMC channel. I guess it was more about the characters than computers. The movie was made in 1957.

"The mysterious man hanging about at the research department of a big TV network proves to be engineer Richard Sumner, who's been ordered to keep his real purpose secret: computerizing the office."
