The great science fiction writer Isaac Asimov was never certain when he was born but he chose to celebrate January 2nd, 1920 as his birthday.  If Asimov were still with us, he might be 98 years old today.

These 4 shots were all taken from films that were based, however loosely, on Asimov’s writings.
