2000
• "Les contes d'Hoffmann", November 2000. The Offenbach opera "The Tales Of Hoffmann" presented in French at the Orange Amphitheatre starring Natalie Dessay as the mechanical doll. As one reviewer noted, "Dessay is a high note specialist and has appeared on film in this role at least three times. In this production she is dressed as a Shirley Temple lookalike. Her diminutive figure, dancing with the 12ft high puppets on the Orange stage is a visual delight."

1996
• "The Stepford Husbands", May 1996. In another sequel to "The Stepford Wives", a husband and wife think they have made the move of a lifetime when they buy a house in a quiet leafy town. At first it appears to be perfect because there is no noise, no crime and no action especially from the male fraternity of the town. Is this just a bizarre place or is there something sinister going on?

1995
• "Imma Youjo II: Making the Woman Perfect", 1995. Ichiro designs androids for brothels. When he perfects his art, he keeps the result, names her Maya, and spends an idyllic year with her. However, Ichiro used materials provided by Sodom, a brothel whose owner wants the finished product. Sodom's henchmen kidnap Maya, delete most of her memory, and put her into service. She proves to be a gold mine, partly because of her design and partly because she retains some memories of loving Ichiro, so she's a tragic and sorrowful playmate. The chairman of the powerful Isozaki conglomerate wants to purchase Maya for himself. Will Ichiro find her? What fate awaits her?

1991
• "Mannequin Two: On the Move", May 1991. A young department store intern falls in love with a female store mannequin who is really a peasant girl fallen under a thousand year spell. She comes to life whenever he removes the cursed necklace from her. Stars Kristy Swanson, William Ragsdale, and Meshach Taylor.

1987
• "The Stepford Children", March 1987. In this sequel to "The Stepford Wives", Steven and Laura Harding (along with their kids David and Mary) have moved to the quiet community of Stepford, CT. Steven joins the men's club, which is still assimilating their wives into robots. This time, they have begun to turn their out of control teens into robots as well. Once they are assimilated, they are obedient, homework loving, big band dancing droids. Laura, David, and Mary stumble onto this mystery, and they must avoid Steven's plans to turn them into robots.
• "Mannequin", February 1987. A young artist falls in love with a female store mannequin who comes to life as an ancient Egyptian princess.

1982
• "Blade Runner", June 1982. An American dystopian science fiction action film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, loosely based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

1981
• "Les contes d'Hoffmann", August 1981. The French version of the Offenbach opera "The Tales Of Hoffmann" starring Plácido Domingo in the title role. In act one, Hoffmann falls in love with the mechanical doll, Olympia.

1980
• "Maniac", December 1980. Frank Zito is a middle-aged, overweight, Italian-American loner living in an unspecified borough of New York City, where he works as the landlord of a small apartment complex. Unbeknownst to his tenants, Frank is a schizophrenic serial killer who spends his nights stalking and killing women, scalping them and bringing the scalps and their clothing back home to decorate his steadily growing supply of mannequins. Once a mannequin has been decorated to his satisfaction, Frank sleeps with it for several nights, using them to carry on one-sided conversations with his deceased mother, an abusive prostitute who subjected him to years of physical abuse before dying in a car accident and leaving him orphaned. Inexplicably, after several nights, Frank grows tired of each mannequin, posing them around different parts of his apartment before seeking out another victim. A remake was released in 2012.
• "Revenge of the Stepford Wives", October 1980. A TV reporter arrives in Stepford to do a story on the American town with the lowest crime and divorce rates and the tightest real-estate market (no one ever leaves). She needs an assistant, and after interviewing the seemingly-plastic women of Stepford, jumps at the chance to hire the down-to-earth Megan, who's married to a newly-hired cop who hasn't yet moved into the town. Four times a day a siren sounds and every woman in town takes a pill (they each claim it's a thyroid condition). Accidents start to happen, Megan disappears for a couple of days, and the reporter realizes something is amiss. When Megan returns as a full-fledged Stepford wife, it's time for action.
• "Beyond Westworld" (TV Series), March 1980. A five episode series based on Westworld and Futureworld. Only three episodes aired. The story revolved around Delos Security Chief John Moore having to stop the evil scientist, Quaid, as he planned to use the robots in Delos to try to take over the world.

• "Futureworld", July 1976. The first sequel to Westworld.

1973
• "Westworld", November 1973. Written by Michael Crichton and also his directorial debut, the film is set sometime in the near future where a high-tech, highly realistic adult amusement park called Delos features androids that are almost indistinguishable from human beings. For $1,000 per day, guests may indulge in any fantasy, including killing or having sex with the androids.

1968
• "How to Make a Doll", November 1968. A nerdy professor who has no luck with women builds beautiful female robots to satisfy his sexual desires.

1964
• "My Living Doll" (TV series), September 1964-1965. Rhoda (Julie Newmar) is an extremely sexy young woman living with womanizing Air Force shrink Bob McDonald. What Bob knows and the rest of the world does not is that Rhoda's real name is AAF709, and she is actually a sophisticated (yet naive) robot. Bob's job is to teach Rhoda how to be a "perfect" woman, and keep her identity secret from the world--especially lecherous neighbor Peter.

1951

While investigating at an old house where bootlegger Joe Worth keeps his alcohol, reporter Florence Dempsey discovers a monster who is connected with the wax museum, but cannot prove any connection with the disappearance of the body of a model named Joan Gale from the morgue. Professor Darcy, a drug addict, is seen running from the house and is caught by the police. When brought to the station, he breaks down and admits that the sculptor Ivan Igor is in fact the killer and that he has been murdering people, stealing their bodies, and dipping them in wax to create lifelike statues.

1927
• "Metropolis", January 1927. Made in Germany by Fritz Lang during the Weimar Period, Metropolis is set in a futuristic urban dystopia, and follows the wealthy son of the city's ruler and a woman named Maria, as they attempt to overcome the vast gulf separating the classist nature of their city. Below the city, workers toil against huge machines that allow the wealthy above ground to live their opulent lives. The workers underground also build humanoid robots.

1916
• "Hoffmanns Erzählungen", February 1916. The first film interpretation of Jacques Offenbach's opera, "The Tales Of Hoffmann", presented in German. A romantic fantasy which includes several vignettes, one of which is the title character (Hoffmann) falling in love with a mechanical doll named Olympia.

Awesome list! Thank you!

You might want to add the following two items to your list -

Chobits - It is an anime series based off of a manga series from Japan. The gist of the plot is that of a naive farm boy from Hokkaido who has recently arrived in Tokyo who finds a discarded persocom (android) and takes her home. He activates her initiating a long string of events with the two major plot points being that she is a persocom struggling to become a sentient A.I. (chobit) and the two of them falling in love. The series was broadcast for the first time in 2002.

Maid Droid - 2008. When he tries to reprogram his robotic maid, Maria (Akiho Yoshizawa), to gratify him sexually, aging Ueno begins to fall in love with the droid -- only to discover that her batteries are slowly but permanently losing their power.
