Elektro is the oldest one i could find -- he wound up in the movies. He played Thinko, a giant robot that handicapped horses, in the 1960 film "Sex Kittens Go to College (1960)," also known as "The Beauty and the Robot," with Mamie Van Doren and Tuesday Weld. have a look at this page all about the robot.

I don't know if the tin man from the Wizard of Oz would be classed as anything other than a robot, that film was in 1939, but in 1920 Czechoslovakian playwright Karel Capek introduces the word robot in the play R.U.R. - Rossum's Universal Robots. The word comes from the Czech robota, which means tedious labor.

I agree with Metropolis, Fritz Lang's masterpiece, which was back in 1927.

There's a good site listing robots in film and television that you might find interesting.

It's not exhaustive or chronological but worth a look all the same - my favourites are Robby in "Forbidden Planet" and Bender in "Futurama".
