The early arcade video game, Computer Space, has a brief cameo in the utterly bleak and depressing Soylent Green. The early 70s had a bunch of these pessimistic films, like A Clockwork Orange. Vietnam really bummed out Hollywood.

Ah yes. I think that Computer Space cabinet became a stock prop, popping up in the backgrounds of several 70's movies. Jaws comes to mind. It does look futuristic. Is that the Rifleman at the end of the clip?

That's right. They would've had to invent a switch box too. Never even thought about it.
