Brigitte Helm in Metropolis (1927, dir. Fritz Lang)

The most seductive robot wink
in cinema history, out of control,
leading troglodyte saps in ridiculous sabots
to near destruction, inciting dinner-suits
to fisticuffs, murder, suicide,
laughing as the flames of the witch-pyre
lick her to base metal.

-Love Letter to Brigitte Helm, Peter Howard
