  • Marie the Magnificent!

    There are simply not enough adjectives to describe how magnificent Marie Curie was and what she did. Her discovery saved millions of lives, including my own, and gave relief of suffering to countless more millions. This film ably shows what she went through in order to effect that discovery. While it is true that her husband, Dr. Pierre Curie, assisted her, that was because a woman in the late 1800s, even a brilliant woman and a doctor, was not taken seriously. The two minds together worked tirelessly to prove what they knew was true in science. This was a time when there were only 78 known elements and the possibility of a 79th was unthinkable to the established scientific minds of the time. Today, there are 188 known elements! Greer Garson gives a magnificent performance here, as does Walter Pidgeon. Their struggles in getting to the basis for proving the element actually existed are well-documented and the film gives a visual to the struggle. It is easy to see why this film garnered eight Academy Award nominations, as Mervyn LeRoy knew his subject and directed the film in such a way that anyone could understand it. It should be understood that without Marie Curie there would be no MRIs, no PET scans, no mammography...no radiologic advances that we see today. She became the first woman professor at the Sorbonne - in science, no less! What a woman! What a film!

    For whatever reason, I love this movie, certainly more than most of the reviews I have read. Greer Garson is absolutely wonderful. The production values are top notch, excellent direction and inspiring screenplay. It's beautifully done.

  • Great Movie

    Movie is mostly about her and her husbands struggle to find radium. It also shows the hardships. Trying to do experiments were much harder then than they are today. They did not have fancy labs. If you are into science they you would like this fim.
