Loss of Feeling.
Jim Rippleís Robot. “Mezhrabpom Films” Production Directed by Alexander Andriyevsky Hello?
Station 18? Over. Station 18. Send the two students Hamilton Grim and
Jim Ripple to conveying machine ìBî
Top secret. Stopwatch study. Conveying machine “B”. Two students.
Hamilton Grim and Jim Ripple.
To the Devilís wheels. Top secret. Over. Two students. Attention, Jim! Get ready! – One second!
– One second… – Forty!
– Forty… Did you understand? Top secret experiment.
The conveying machine will move 0,3 faster in a minute. This is a crime! Yet itís only an experiment and… an economy
of 40 dollars per minute. Faster! Faster! Faster!!!
Donít get behind!!! Donít get behind!!! Donít get behind!!! Stand by everyone!!!
Everyone who wonít go will be dismissed! Hurry up, faster!!!
Donít get behind!!! Iím not getting tired.
So am I. Let go!!! Let go! It was supposed that proletariatís nerves
are much stronger. And then a banker shot himself. The eighth banker in a week. Thatís what Iím talking about, we have to
quit with machines and get back doing things
with our own hands. Look! Who is that? Some crazy or a writer I guess. Automatic dolls. Automatic dolls. Automatic dolls. Jim! Jim!!!
Donít you recognize old Bill? – What are you doing here?
– Iím looking for a place to stay at night. And what about your invention? It doesnít have any military sense.
And they wonít buy those. – I believe you keep on studying?
– Yes! And youíll see that the… What Iíll see is that you will starve the way I do.
If you continue to live in this damn country. Big lights. Jim! Honey, whatís wrong with you? I have destroyed it. What have you destroyed Jim? Thatís the matter of work. You see Clare, what we need is stop
providing them things at all. Who, Jim?
Capitalists or working men? Both of them. You are tired Jim, itís stuffy here.
Iíll open the window. Look Clare.
The third shift is coming back. Look Clare. Iíll tell you everything
and you will understand everything. Iíll become an engineer only because
of you and Jack. But is this a solution?
Itís not for everyone. And the capitalists are trying to make us
their assistants, all of us. We need only firm measures! We need to destroy the fundament of this
working question, and capitalism ñ as a result. This means that you are?..
Jim, you are not creating this hell machine? Well of course Iím not. You see Clare, we have to destroy capitalism.
We need a revolution in this nowhere going country. And in the country where the machines are developed,
it will die itself! Without any revolution. And you know Clare, I think I am able to create
this revolutionary thing – the one that will
change the whole world. Long-awaited day of graduating in a polytechnic
was shaded from the very morning. Jim, youíve got a letter from Bill Harwood. Oh, Bill the engineer. I have met him at night
near the overnight stop. Read it Clare, please. Farewell Jim. I have left for the new country
that needs new engineers. Thatís strange…
He didnít say a word about it yesterday. I think they know how to use coal there
And my invention could be useful I guess. Well, maybe. You never know. Maybe Bolshevism is good enough for wild Russia,
but itís not good with our culture. Iím not really sure about this. It will be us, who will solve this problem,
scientists and engineers. As the ìVolcanoî factory is closed now
part of the workers are sent to “Big lights” factory. Workers from both factories are now
on a half-week schedule. Due to difficulties in the industry
the 20% prices decrease was announced. Get lost! Get lost!!!
Itís a strike!!! The tight situation of national industry
makes the whole nation suffer. – You heard it?!
– Hey, hush there! Employers donít throw their workers on the street
after they close the factories. They give them the opportunity
to work 3 days a week. In charge of those who worked for 6 days a week. Half of the salary is much better
than dying from a starvation!!! We know about the decrease of prices,
they want to ignite conveying machine as soon as possible. Your Jim has made this surprise along with them. What???
You lie! – Jim Ripple is a student.
– He tries to be an engineer already. He is my brother, he wonít betray the workers. Weíve seen your Jim with some fascist. They were trying to speed the conveying machine up
when the accident happened. Tom, please tell them itís not true. Well… I really donít know! The gala class in polytechnic. You know Mary, I am nervous a bit.
Like itís me who gets a diploma, but not Jim. Has anything happened? Jack, tell me! No Mary… well, yes… well, itís that Charlie and I,
weíve been moved to a half-week schedule at work. Oh, my God! And I thought something happened to Jim. No! Jim wonít let us down. However some weird guy told me today… Itís bullshit, itís not true!
Today is the big day! The train will arrive in 20 minutes. Stop being so quite!
Come on! Letís meet Jim! You are right! Letís just do it! Great! Thank you Jim! You have grown and youíve been living with us!
Let yourself be a good example for all of us! The whole working class is proud of its engineer! You are with us, tomorrow and today,
Long live Jim Ripple! Hooray!!! Quite! Jim wants to speak. My friends!
I have become an engineer with your help! And Iíll try to live up to your hopes
as a worker and as an engineer. And Iíll succeed with the help of our new friend.
Please meet! This is “Micron”.
A machine that is able to do almost everything. – Mum, mum, look!
– Oh, he is really terrible!
– Whatís wrong with his ears? This thing amuses.
You can go to the circus with it. I hope that your engineer will stop
creating dolls like this one. Oh really? Take a look! Jim! Who is all this for? Itís for you! Capitalism makes a tool for
enslavement out of any machines. The machines invade in peopleís life. And I am going to make the step in technical development
which will change everything. I have created an automatic device which can do anything.
He will easily replace all the workers on any factory. What will happen? The World Market will be overfilled.
The prices will decrease. And without any revolution
the capital itself will not exist any longer. One person told me today that you are a traitor. I called him a liar…
Bu I guess, I was wrong. We brought you up, taught you, and you have found the way
how to throw all of us on the street. These machines are for you. For us? And what about the government? Really…
Have you forgotten about the prison, police and unemployment? You will create these machines. Oh no! The hands of your machines will be the hands of capitalism
and they will choke us off sooner than capital itself
will be destroyed according to your recipe. You fool!!!
Trying to make peace between two different worlds!!! Donít touch the machine Jack!!! You scum!!! The head worker Jack Ripple is the machine destroyer. Farewell… brother. Jim! Jim! Let me pass, damn it all! Oh, itís you Jim.
Iíve been looking for you all evening. Youíve got a telegram. Preliminary check for one hundred dollars.
Total guarantee of independence and freedom. When is the express coming? In twenty minutes. Give it to sister. Good evening. Itís from your brother. “Big Lights” village.
A telegram for engineer Ripple. Preliminary check for one hundred dollars. Total guarantee of independence and freedom. Free laboratories and workshops. Exclusive license. Congratulations. Waiting for you. Signed by Hamilton Grim. On behalf of a father Percy Grim. Jim writes. I am right. Soon youíll see everything yourself.
Goodbye. Yours, Jim. Keep in mind!
Jim Ripple is no longer a part of our family. Things have gone in due course and in half a year… The floor is given to my son,
engineer-lieutenant Hamilton Grim. Dear gentlemen… Mister Rotterdam. Dear gentlemen. “Robot” is a machine,
that makes the functions of a man. This very word “robot” ñ it is similar to “worker”,
youíll get the point right away. We really have to look for a new worker.
The cheap, incessant and invulnerable one,
And who wonít be a revolutionary menace. Only yesterday the technical thought
was close to imperfect. There were automatic devices, cigar sellers,
doorkeepers, photographers, policemen.
Today it is all more serious. The plane flies without a pilot.
The tank doesnít need a driver.
The ship goes without any crew. But tomorrow itíll be a “Robot”! The universal controller of everything.
The machine that looks like a man,
like the one he is to replace
in the nearest future. The Robot of engineer Ripple ñ is a Tomorrow. It is a genius solution of a so-called
“proletariat problem”. Let take a look at this Robotís working scheme. His radio set receives the commands.
Or even a sound, or an order. And passes the signals to a distribution block,
which controls this machineís will. The needful electric energy comes
from the inner block “C”,
which is our engineerís secret. Whatís the capacity of this block? Ten thousand ampere hours! Whaa-a-at??? Engineer Ripple. Let us not waste our time. – Music Hall?
– Attention please. Please meet.
Rippleís universal worker.
rUr! Exactness. Exactness, strength and quick reaction. Today itís a sound and an order.
Tomorrow itís the language and the thought. THE THOUGHT!!!
Because the thinking process is also material. Engineer, this is your invention. Now? During the crisis?
It is insane! Iíve never heard of a crisis in a military industry. Excuse me. Iím not a military person.
But I think that tanks and battleships
are more frightful than this. Oh yes, I do respect dreadnought,
but Iíd prefer the crew on it
with the nerves of steel like this. There was a hard work in the attic
in order to restore the broken automat. Arenít you afraid to spoil it? Not at all. It would be hard to.
Jack made his best alright. Listen.
Go to scheme “¿” please,
maybe weíll do something there. – Restoring, uncle Jack, restoring.
– If only one draft wouldíve survived,
all we got is our notes.
Try to understand what is what. I think there is one man who could
help a lot here. He is a worker. A radio technician.
His name… his name is… Roy! You are right. From our countryís point of view
all these rewards are not enough for you. But the Future will give you more.
Youíll see how the nation will meet you. Nation. The war is coming. In this condition it is necessary to produce
the rUrs in a massive way. You know it, that there are only officers of the army
working on our experimental factory. It seems like we have no other choice. There is a solution. We could use black people.
It is safe, they wonít be interested in secrets. You are at your best, as usually! We were not only repairing it,
we were taking hold of it a little. One broken head
made the other four work and think. No boasting, not now. Itís not the time yet!
Mister engineer had a long start over us,
around a hundred points ahead. Here, take a look, the latest news. Shit! My God, heís huge! Eh guys… Surrender? Surrender, you devils? They have shut up, went sour. Eh, apologies for engineers. Itís not enough to understand “Micron”,
one should take hold of these rUrs. There were only special department officers
working on the secret factory. Attention!!! Excuse me, a telegram from the government is received. They want to speed the things up
with the manpower replacement. The thing is that the steel concern can provide you
with any factory you want. The factory doesnít matter, pick any. How about “Big Lights”?
This one is very close. “Big Lights”?
Suits me. “Big Lights”… Thatís even better. Iíll report to the government right away. Well-well, brother Jack.
Letís talk one more time. My friends, they want to make traitors of you. They think that you wonít support white workers. This is a secret military factory. They create mechanical soldiers
against all the workers. The workers must get hold of control. We send this person to the factory.
He looks like Rami and heíll use his passkey. Not today. But when the military factories will go on strike,
you will do the same thing. Sister! I need to see you. Come visit me.
Iíll be waiting near the highway across the post at 9pm.
Yours, Jim. Jim, is that you? Arrived with an unknown woman. Letís check my machines. Radiowave control. rUr keeps his balance automatically
and responds on hindrance. I am also able to see with his eyes
using this television set. Jim! Come on, relax, that was a joke. Some say that you are a traitor. I would like not to believe this. Well donít. Donít! Stop this machine! We have started a game of death. When theyíll try to get rid of me,
Iíll command you to protect me. You hear?! You!!! At the right moment Roy has made some changes. Letís talk again, brother Jack. Weíll see who will get the victory! When every… every detail… But no one even tries to understand… Traitor…
Eh? Traitor? Traitor? Eh? Traitor? Quickly, everything must be done before Roy comes. Today heíll make an attempt to find out
the secret of the main capacitor at the factory. And even if he fails, weíve almost reached our goal.
Weíll find the secret ourselves. Bravo Jim!
Bravo! Iím not a traitor! IíM NOT A TRAITOR!!! We have no doubt about it. Yeah, right… – Got it?
– Got it. Look after the receiver Roy.
The order will be given via the radio set.
We have to pass the signal. Nearly half of all factories are on strike, people support us.
And according to the Central Committee, others shall
do the same as well. Send the biker in order to
get in touch with the city committee. Strike-breakers, strike-breakers!!!
The armoured car has arrived. Hush! I assure you, thereís no strike-breakers at all! Itís a lie. Prove it then,
if you can. Right! Prove it! We donít believe it! Weíll let the delegation in this unit. Just look at the worker future replacements.
Nowadays they are kind. Long live Ripple! Long live the Nation! – The delegates are coming.
– Look! Engineer Rippleís machines are working. I want to talk to the workers. Give the order.
Today all of us are your rUrs. Let him speak.
A matter of security. Pit, please try to remove
the control point here. Quick march!!! My friends. It is engineer Ripple
who speaks to you! Your Jim. You believe he is a traitor.
But you are wrong. Donít worry. Just listen to me. Here, I give you my hand,
to let us go through new ways together,
to build the new world in unity. Well, come to me. Donít make fools of us. Charlie, itís Jim.
Just talk to him, will you? Well hello there, dirty-nose.
Where the devil are from? Once an elephant tried to make friends with a mosquito. Is he alive? My friends!
My friends, it is a mistake! My friends, I didnít want to! – Now what the hell is going on?
– Bastards!
– They killed our Ripple! Urgent radiogram. Cipher. The general strike has begun. In some blocks people tried to build
the barricades some time ago. Your presence is necessary. Percy Grim. Do you know how to control? Yes general. Only I know it.
Yet only partly. In this case you better start working. Good luck. The wound is not very serious. Itís not the point. The fact itself shouldnít remain
without any redemption. We must finish with these villains. We will. The experiment goes on.
Please follow me. Stop! Stop! Five killed, twelve wounded,
except for Charlie. Send there two more picket groups.
Calm all women, give signals to the nearest factories. The hand is damaged. Lost too much blood. Faint. Is it dangerous? Itís not that serious. Stop!!! Only accurate work will help us
to intercept the control. Weíll define the main wave. And we will paralyze it. Then weíll see who shall win. Smith! The ground connection is in order? In order. Raise the chain tension. They are very close!
The machines are near the village! Alarm!
Take the guns and hide the kids. Jack, go and find out whatís happening there.
Tell Roy to report to the city committee. Smith, check the ground connection. Contact. No hurry. Calm down. The machines are getting close to the village. Report to the committee. They are in the village already. Nice work. Clare, let us pass, weíll carry Charlie in. I wonít go, Iíll stay here till the end. Calm down!
And hurry up! Halt!
Stop! Surrender! Bastard! They are getting back.
Congratulations, gentlemen. They are attacking us general.
Itís the workers. Where is my car? After capturing the machines, the workers attacked. Gunners, attack the rUrs… Fire!!! The End
