Terrific new film about the battle between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to provide electrical power to the Chicago World's Fair and to the whole of the United States. Edison was pushing DC power, and Westinghouse and Tesla were convinced ( correctly) that AC was the only way to go. The battle between them gets quite bitter and Edison comes out looking self centered and much less the man than the likeable Westinghouse.
A well acted sumptuous looking film which I am sure will enthrall Steve Klare and a lot of other people on this forum.

The best of all worlds- 8mm, super 8mm, 9.5mm, and HD Digital Projection,
