Tesla, Edison and JP Morgan

Thursday, October 25, 2012

This video is a section of a movie called The Secret of Nikola Tesla
Produced in 1980 and directed by Krsto Papic, it stars Petar Bozovic as Nikola Tesla, Dennis Patrick as Thomas Edison and Orson Welles as J.P. Morgan.
In this scene Morgan holds a meeting between Tesla and Edison in an attempt to decide what form the new electrical systems will take.
A fascinating recreation of one of the turning points in technological history.

You can watch the entire film at YouTube here.
It is a reasonably accurate biography of Tesla from what I can see.
Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
