The Six Million Dollar Man

The Six Million Dollar Man

An accident left astronaut, Steve Austin clinging to life. A bionics genius brought him back. Better, stronger, faster than before. Now with a 20:1 zoom feature with infrared tracking tech in his left eyeball, a super-powered right arm, and bionic legs capable of a top speed of 60 mph. Total cost: $6 million, or roughly $28 billion in today’s dollars. Lee Major stars as The Six Million Dollar Man. Richard Anderson plays Oliver Goldman, the cyborg engineer at O.S.I. (Office of Scientific Intelligence). Three TV pilot movies in 1973 led to the series launch of The Six Million Dollar Man series in 1974, which in turn spun off The Bionic Woman in 1976, and three post-series TV movies starring the charismatic cyborgs.
