Owned by the Delos Corporation, the world's largest company,
Westworld is a huge entertainment complex complete with robots
that assist visitors in carrying out their most wild fantasies.
Their robots are covered with a skin-like material and for the
most part can not be distinguished from a real human. These
humanoids populate the complex as workers and participants in the
events at Westworld.
Scientist Simon Quaid (James Wainwright) and Joseph Oppenheimer
(William Jordan) attempts to use these
robots as pawns in their plan for world conquest so he can turn
the planet into a utopian society.
Quaid used his robots in a number of nefarious plots, including
- Planting a robot planted aboard a nuclear sub.
- Controlling of an oil empire by eliminating family members.
- Smuggling an atomic bomb out of the country via a rock band.
- Sabotaging a car manufacturer's racing team to gain control
of the company's new engine.
- Infiltrating police protection for a governor.

the sequel Futureworld (1976) starring Yul Brenner as the

box-office hit Jurassic Park (1993).
