Robocop Came Out 31 Years Ago Today

In a violent, apocalyptic Detroit, evil corporation, Omni Consumer Products, wins a contract from the city government to privatize the police force. Unfortunately, the huge crime-fighting robot which the company developed has a rather dangerous glitch. The company sees a way to get back in favor with the public when policeman Alex Murphy is killed by a street gang. Murphy's body is reconstructed within a steel shell and called RoboCop.

 26-year-old actor Kevin Page was making his big screen debut as Omni Consumer Products (OCP) junior executive Mr. Kinney. And like a Star Trek junior officer, he didn’t last long in the film. He was decimated by the tremendous firepower of the enormous robot police officer ED-209 in a boardroom demonstration where they discover the, “glitch”.

“Oh my God, they killed Kinney!”
