I was watching the movie Queen of Outer Space (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052104/) on the box just recently and was mightily impressed with their sci-fi design of the TVs of the future. Given the bulky nature of CRT sets, this must have been absolute fantasy ... along with the rest of the film.
The bezel and screen looks just like a modern day flat-screen TV.
Screen shots attached.

This was an amazing look into the future. Even the stand for the flat screen is "modern day".

Hey, it looks like a gold-plated iMac!
And come to think of it, the two actors look like Mac people :-)
(No flames please, I'm a Mac user mself!)

I guess they didn't have 3½ inch floppy drives back then, either!

And I think that's supposed to be the remote control in her hand too. Impressive considering this was all imagined before I was even born!

Whats even crazier is Ray bradbury had predicted Wall-Sized 3-D televisions about 10 years before that.
even crazier predictions of film and literature that came true:
It really makes me realize that we currently DO live in the future science fiction and the worlds fair promised us, we're just a little to jaded to care.
