Visionary director Fritz Lang had a prolific career spanning from the days of silent film all the way to the 1960's, but his 1927 science fiction film Metropolis is by far his most imitated, and it's most recognizable feature is definitely a robot whose design still looks modern after all these years. There's no doubt its look has been co-opted in countless films, TV shows and comic books, including, of course, the world's most famous golden robot, C3P0.
