[Poster]: See Rossums Universal Robots. A Play with a Message [Not a Motion Picture]. Sacramento Memorial Auditorium
Sacramento: Hapeman-Gee Printing Co.. 1927. Printed in blue ink on cardstock. Approximately 14" x 11.25". Tiny tears or small creases, else a near fine copy. The information "A Play with a Message" has been added over an original line (that seems like it might have been misspelled). An influential play by Karel Capek, which premiered in Prague in 1921, most famous now for introducing the word "robot" (derived from the Czech noun "robota" meaning "labor"). The play, in which androids who are at first content to work for their human creators decide to rebel, made its U.S. premiere in 1922 and supposedly Spencer Tracy made his stage debut as one of the robots in an early American production. .
