Sunday Cinema: Isaac Asimov’s ‘Little Lost Robot’

Back in 1962, a British TV series Out Of This World (hosted by the great Boris Karloff!) aired the episode “Little Lost Robot” based on the 1947 Isaac Asimov stoy of the same name. What a treat — it not only features the character of Dr. Susan Calvin, but also prominently utilizes the Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics.

Check it out. You can actually see the actor’s feet as the “robot” walks away at the 2:55 minute mark.
