Thomas Edison (American Experience)

In mid-October, 1922, a film crew arrived in the small town of West Orange, New Jersey, to spend some time with the most famous man in the world - the phenomenally prolific American inventor, Thomas Edison. Over the course of a few days, the cameras captured the great man at work: chatting with employees and conducting experiments in his lab, overseeing tests of packing materials in his factories, and catching up on the latest advances in the device for which he was best known.

By the time he died in 1931, Thomas Edison was one of the most famous men in the world. The holder of more patents than any other inventor in history, Edison had amassed a fortune and achieved glory as the genius behind such revolutionary inventions as sound recording, motion pictures, and electric light.
