The plot is not new. Lubitsch already adressed the subject "android" 1919 in DIE PUPPE and Fritz Lang 1927 in METROPOLIS. In his last directorial work PANENKA (in German "doll"), Land rewrites the story: Vyr is building a perfect android. But the prototype is damaged before the presentation. His employee Vera has to play the role until replacement is found. But there is none and Vera is caught in the role.
