I know this one's easy; indulge me. This image first appeared on televisions today. What is it? The eye of Sauron?

Sometimes what happened in the 50s should stay in the '50s.

A tag line from a TV show 32 years the future would have been appropriate for this film: "When they met, it was murder!"

Apparently Hollywood finds little of interest in early 1951--we have to go to the second half of the year before things really start happening. Before we start the movies, note that it's been ten years since we introduced the world's first fully functional, freely programmable computer. And now we have the first commecially available computer.
