Farewell to the Master

by Harry Bates

I disagree with Gil that the 1951 movie left out the surprise punchline. While that ending was not used as-is, it was implicate in the background that Klaatu gave in his speech to the Scientists. Since I do not want to give away that ending I can not be more explicate but if you think about it you can see how that ending was morphed into the scenario about the status of the Robots used in the movie.
