The 100 Greatest Movie Robots of All Time

(Image: MGM)

It hadn't occurred to me before, but yes: the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz is clearly a robot. Like other movie robots, such as Star Trek's Data, he's trying to become more human. Many other cinema robots are practically human already or comfortable in their artificial nature.

This is 1 of 100 movie robots described in an impressive list at Paste magazine. Among them are B-movie monsters, childhood heroes, and other creatures you wouldn't normally think of as robots, but are.

So it was . . .

"One of the big trees had been partly chopped through, and standing beside it, with an uplifted axe in his hands, was a man made entirely of tin. His head and arms and legs were jointed upon his body, but he stood perfectly motionless, as if he could not stir at all. "

The Tin Woodsman was a man who had a curse placed on him by a witch. While chopping wood, he chopped off his own leg and had it replaced by a metal one. Then he chopped off the other leg, both arms, and his torso. Only his head remained flesh and bone.
