Tobor The Great Blu-Ray
Newly Re-mastered in HD! A Man-Made Monster with Every Human Emotion!
To avoid the life-threatening dangers of manned space exploration,
Professor Nordstrom (Taylor Holmes, Quicksand) creates a highly advanced
form of artificial intelligence capable of piloting a starship to other
worlds. In order to transmit alien data, the extraordinary robot is
infused with a powerful telepathic device that enables it to instantly
read and even feel emotions. Danger strikes when a sinister band of
covert agents kidnaps Gadge (Billy Chapin, The Night of the Hunter), the
professor's 10-year-old grandson. But Gadge has a powerful ally, for he
has developed a psychic, emotional bond with his grandfather's robot,
Tobor. And now Gadge's captors must suffer the wrath of his protective
friend and face a mechanical monstrosity bent on a killing rampage of
revenge and destruction. Serial and TV veteran Lee Sholem (Superman and
the Mole Men) directed this cult classic shot by the great John L.
Russell (Psycho) and starring Charles Drake (It Came from Outer Space),
Karin Booth (Jungle Man-Eaters) and Steven Geray (Gilda).
