The Colossus of New York is a 1958 science fiction film produced by William Alland and directed by Eugène Lourié. It stars Ross Martin, Otto Kruger, John Baragrey, Mala Powers, and Charles Herbert. Jeremy Spensser (Ross Martin), the brilliant young scion of a New York family of scientists and humanitarians, is killed in an automobile accident. His death occurs on the eve of his winning the "International Peace Prize," and he leaves behind a wife (Marla Powers) and young son (Charles Herbert). Jeremy's father, noted brain surgeon William Spensser (Otto Kruger), is distressed that his son's gifts will be denied to Mankind. He conceives a plan to give Jeremy's excellent mind another chance to benefit humanity by transplanting the brain (which he has revived and kept on life support) into an artificial, robotic body. William convinces Jeremy's brother, Henry, an expert in automation, to assist with the process in secret. Because of its horrific appearance, the huge colossus (Ed Wolff) they've created is kept in seclusion for nearly a year, secretly continuing Jeremy's work on new food sources. However, deprived of normal human contact and possibly of its "soul," Jeremy's mind begins to lose its humanity. He kills his brother, who has fallen in love with Jeremy's wife, and then speaks to his father of the futility of providing food for "the slum people of the world," when it's "simpler and wiser to get rid of them." As Jeremy's mind loses control over his mechanical body, other unexplained powers suddenly emerge from the strictly mechanical body, including mind control of humans and a death ray emanating from both its eyes.
