When Dr. Roberts is looking for a hiding place for the key card, the clock on his bookshelf indicates that the time is 2.30. Seconds later, it has jumped forward 15 minutes, showing 2.45.

Fascinating, prophetic film featuring all of Susan Dey!
Mr. Friedman's review says it all. I loved this film when I first saw it and have never forgotten it. The premise includes the notion that, one day, it will be possible for computers to create lifelike images of real people. 20 yrs. later, we're still working on it, but close. Haven't seen it in a long time but remember it was dramatic and well executed. And yes, I'd personally see this film again just for that scene of Susan Dey's gorgeous bod being turned on a pedestal, being laser scanned into a computer.
