Year of feature (shown above)


The screen shown is not a real lisa screen, it is created using a common Lisa screen shot as a model (do an image search for Apple Lisa and you'll find it near the top). Real Lisas do not overscan like this prop, and when the mouse button is released the menus do not redraw line by like like the film shows. A Lisa 1 also won't run without its ProFile hard disk attached, but none is shown in the film.
