Paper Dewey - Drone from 1972 film "Silent Running"

Paper sculpt of Dewey, one of the little drones that serviced the spaceship "Valley Forge" from the 1972 film "Silent Running"
This film was directed by Douglas Trumball, who helmed the special effects and model making of Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey"
There were three drones, Huey, Louey, and Dewey, that were co-opted and used to commandeer the ship when it was ordered to ddestroy it's payload and return to Earth. Interestingly enough, the robots were controlled by bi-lateral amputee actors inside the robot costumes. The whole production fascinated me as a young sci fi geek. :)
