The Day the Earth Stood Still-
        Suite (Bernard Herrmann)

In 1974 Bernard Herrmann arranged a suite from the film score he composed for director Rober Wise's THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (1951) which was based on the story "Farewell to the Master" by Harry Bates. He recorded the suite in London conducting the National Philharmonic Orchestra. The suite was the third of four suites on the London Phase 4 album THE FANTASY FILM WORLD OF BERNARD HERRMANN. The suite contains the cues "Outer Space", "Radar", "Gort", "The Robot", "Space Control", "Terror" and "Farewell and Finale".

One of our all time favorite sci-fic movies is the classic "Day The Earth Stood Still." The original, not the pathetic remake. Here is presented the "Lux Radio Theater," presentation starring Michael Rennie from the original movie and Jean Peters in the female role. A true classic of the golden age of radio.

My Favorite Movie: "The Day The Earth Stood Still"

     The Day the Earth Stood Still is a milestone in the history of sci-fi movies. It's one of the first to portray aliens in a positive light, and champions multilateral cooperation to boot! It was regarded by some as proof of Communist influence in the movie industry in that McCarthy-dominated era (one of its major actors was blacklisted.) My memory of seeing the movie as an 11 year old boy was being scared by the big robot, but in later years it's become a favorite. The Blu-Ray restoration brings out all the detail and clarity of seeing the movie on the screen.

    If you look at the Clips #4 & #5 on the left menu with Klaatu telling the world either live in peace or be eliminated. The idea that the world must live in peace or the planet would be dstroyed by an army of Robots like Gort who police the Universe is an incredible idea. WOW! What the world would be like if we lived without war.

Decription/Summary/Editorial Reviews:
The Day The Earth Stood Still depicts the arrival of an alien dignitary, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who has come to earth with his deadly robot, Gort (Lock Martin), to deliver the message that earthlings must stop warring among themselves--or else. After being shot at by military guards, Klaatu is brought to a Washington, D.C. hospital, where he begs a sympathetic but frank Major White (Robert Osterloh) to gather all the world's leaders so he can tell them more specifically what he has come to warn them about. Losing patience, Klaatu slips into the human world, adapting a false identity and living at a boarding house where he meets a smart woman with a conscience and her inquisitive son. Both mother and son soon find themselves embroiled in the complex mystery of Klaatu, his message and the government's witch hunt for the alien.

History of the Word: Robot

    A Robot is a machine, especially one programmable by a computer, capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. Robots can be guided by an external control device or the control may be embedded within. Robots may be constructed on the lines of human form, but most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to their aesthetics.

    The word robot was introduced to the public by the Czech interwar writer Karel Capek in his play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), published in 1920. The play begins in a factory that uses a chemical substitute for protoplasm to manufacture living, simplified people called robots. The play does not focus in detail on the technology behind the creation of these living creatures, but in their appearance they prefigure modern ideas of androids, creatures who can be mistaken for humans. These mass-produced workers are depicted as efficient but emotionless, incapable of original thinking and indifferent to self-preservation. At issue is whether the robots are being exploited and the consequences of human dependence upon commodified labor (especially after a number of specially-formulated robots achieve self-awareness and incite robots all around the world to rise up against the humans).

R.U.R (Rossum's Universal Robots) Play 1920

    Karel Capek himself did not coin the word. He wrote a short letter in reference to an etymology in the Oxford English Dictionary in which he named his brother, the painter and writer Josef Capek, as its actual originator.

    In an article in the Czech journal Lidové noviny in 1933, he explained that he had originally wanted to call the creatures labori ("workers", from Latin labor). However, he did not like the word, and sought advice from his brother Josef, who suggested "roboti". The word robota means literally "corvee", "serf labor", and figuratively "drudgery" or "hard work" in Czech and also (more general) "work", "labor" in many Slavic languages (e.g.: Bulgarian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Polish, Macedonian, Ukrainian, archaic Czech, as well as robot in Hungarian).

    Traditionally the robota (Hungarian robot) was the work period a serf (corvee) had to give for his lord, typically 6 months of the year. The origin of the word is the Old Church Slavonic (Old Bulgarian) rabota "servitude" ("work" in contemporary Bulgarian and Russian), which in turn comes from the Proto-Indo-European root *orbh-. Robot is cognate with the German root Arbeit (work).

KAREL, the Robot, Teachs Introduction to Programming     Karel, the Robot, was invented by Richard E. Pattis in the 1970s to teach introduction to computer programming. Karel was named after the Czechoslovakian playwright Karel Capek, above whose play RUR ("Rossum's Universal Robots") introduced the now common R-word into our vocabulary.
    Although originally based on Pascal, the Karel approach has been used successfully with several different computer programming languages. The pages on KAREL's Home Page describe a version of Karel that uses the C / C++ language.

Sample Turbo HAL animation
Turbo HAL, The Robot
    TURBO HAL: the integrated environment, was developed in 1989 as an improved MS-DOS version of Karel using the exact same syntax as Pattis' version (with Pattis' blessing*). It is a tool to introduce students to structured programming, especially in beginning programming classes such as Pascal. It is designed to be low cost alternative programming simulator to Karel. It is actually free.
    HAL is an easy-to-use integrated environment running in MS-DOS that does not require a separate editor, compiler, linker, linker and debugger in order to create, debug and run Karel programs. HAL lives in the Borland language environment (that of Turbo Pascal) with its editor, DOS-windows and pull down environment.
   This software was designed by Tim Totten of Hillsborough Community College of Tampa, Florida.

Amazing Robots of Today

    Robots can be autonomous or semi-autonomous and range from humanoids such as Honda's Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (ASIMO) and TOSY's TOSY Ping Pong Playing Robot (TOPIO) to industrial robots, medical operating robots, patient assist robots, dog therapy robots, collectively programmed swarm robots, UAV drones such as General Atomics MQ-1 Predator, and even microscopic nano robots. By mimicking a lifelike appearance or automating movements, a robot may convey a sense of intelligence or thought of its own. Autonomous things are expected to proliferate in the coming decade, with home robotics and the autonomous car as some of the main drivers
