The MANIAC I (Mathematical Analyzer, Numerical Integrator, and Computer or Mathematical Analyzer, Numerator, Integrator, and Computer, according to one reference) was an early computer built by Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, was based on the von Neumann architecture of the IAS, developed by John von Neumann.
As with all computers of its era, it was a one of a kind machine that could not exchange programs with other computers (even other IAS machines).
Maniac is on a lot of people’s most-hated films list, and frankly, I wouldn’t ask any of them to reconsider.
I know that’s bound to raise an eyebrow or two, but consider Hitch’s next to last picture, Frenzy…it was the first film he made to receive an R rating, and it indicated an escalation of on-screen horror, and even a bit of misogyny on the side.
Maniac has looked pretty bad on tape in recent years; this DVD, though imperfect (by nature), is a revelation.
