Maria from Metropolis
In popular culture, though, robots have been very human like. The first robot to come onto the silver screen was Maria the robot from the movie "Metropolis," which came out in 1927. This character, plays a central role in the film's dystopian vision of the future in which humans and robots are in conflict. Maria is considered a direct predecessor of C-3PO of "Star Wars" fame and other humanoid robots.
