    RAH was not one prone to BSing. He, Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke were in their prime during WWII.

      The interesting thing about them is that they didn't have literary backgrounds--all of them had degrees in various scientific fields. They just happened to like writing, so they wrote in fields they had great knowledge of.


      As for the movie, it seems to me so far that someone snagged the movie rights for I, Robot just so they could put this title on the movie. They could have just used a title from the Book of Generic Movie Titles (TM). I mean, the three rules have been used by so many other writers in their robot stories, I would think you wouldn't need to credit him anymore. They have sort of come under public domain.
