Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Something of a whitewash job, it never begins to suggest the stubborn and sometimes shortsighted side to the inventor's character that led him, for example, first to fail to recognise the potential of his invention of the movie camera and projector.
This is an excellent movie about Edison,his life, and his inventions. Spencer Tracy is great as well as the entire cast. I bought it from iTunes so I can watch again.
