Neat and overpriced old movie poster: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/for/4963235895.html

I've never seen "The Invisible Boy", certainly not in Spanish, but now I move it to the top of my "to watch" list.

Edit: Another poster attached, and a curiously dark (except for center) version online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXuN7fEsa9Y
"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

- Pablo Picasso

    I believe it's currently available on the Warner Instant Archive streaming channel (Roku, etc.). They offer 30 day trial, so you can watch it for free, knowing the cheapskate that you are!

    On edit: Just looked and it doesn't appear to be there at the moment. I think they rotate this stuff around, so bookmark their site to see if it returns.

    Well played Mr. Gately!!
    Timmie is a typical ten-year-old boy: he loves fun and mischief and hates to study. When his scientist father, in an attempt to improve Timmie's mind, plops him in front of the Super Computer, the boy learns more than how to beat his dad at chess. With designs on world domination, the computer has Timmie reactivate Robbie the Robot and directs the metal hulk to do his bidding. But while Robbie is an efficient minion, can he be made to harm the boy who gave him life?

    What's not to like about this one?

    and there's more........
    Robby the Robot's appearance in the film was partly because it was so expensive to build him for Forbidden Planet (1956) that MGM felt obliged to use him in another project
    How many studios wish they could do that with an actor after a bad box office return?

    Ishtar, anybody??? No?

    Box Office
    Budget: $51,000,000 (estimated)
    Gross: $14,375,181 (USA)
