The Invisible Boy (1957)

Timmie, the child of the inventor of a supercomputer, is hypnotised by the computer and, under its suggestion, revives Robby The Robot. Timmie and Robby become friends, but the supercomputer reprograms Robby to do its evil bidding. Oh, and almost incidentally, Timmie is made invisible.

Remington Rand UNIVAC I

The UNIVAC appears to be some sort of front end computer to the main supercomputer.

Importance: **
Realism: *****
Most of this film is pretty wacky but the actual use of a UNIVAC as a front-end processor to such a machine is pretty much spot on.
