Girl Meets Android
28 October 2007 | by theageofvicariousSee all my reviews

This "play" sports one of the finest moments of acting, when a young Rip Torn plays a renegade android. The role humanizes the android, just as Shakespeare's words humanize Hamlet. The action takes place in a society that lives on the backs of a slave class of androids that are so humanoid that an "A" must be branded on their foreheads to tell them apart from real humans. One android becomes aware and has a psychological breakdown in which he is violent. The android runs to his creator's home for asylum where he meets the researcher's empathetic daughter (played by a young Suzanne Pleshette). The "A" is removed from his forehead, but can he really pass for human? (The climax of the story occurs when the daughter's finance attempts to rat-out the android and then he and the android get into a fight.) The dialog attempts to illuminate the question: What is it that makes us human?
