Yeah, "The Billion Dollar Brain" is a Cold War spy thriller, part of
the 'arry Palmer (Michael Caine) series, memorable members of which
are "The Ipcress File" and "Funeral in Berlin". BDB is definitely
*not* pro-US, BTW. It's one of those movies that you either like or
The laughable part of this is that a Honeywell H200 was used as the
"brain"; supposedly a supercomputer, but in real life, little more
than a souped-up IBM 1401.
