The Inventors' Specials
( Devine Entertainment $19.95 Score: ) An excellent series about famous scientists introduces young viewers to the past with an artful blend of fact and fiction. Each film pairs a well-known scientist with a young person-and both learn much from each other. Marie Curie (OPPENHEIM TOY PORTFOLIO PLATINUM AWARD 2001) is an exciting tale of two sisters whose lives cross paths with Madame Curie during World War I. The girls believe that the Nobel scientist is a spy, and the story allows us to follow Madame Curie's fight to use her revolutionary x-ray machine to save lives. In the end it is Curie's invention that saves the girls' father. Edison (OPPENHEIM TOY PORTFOLIO PLATINUM AWARD 2001 ) opens with a chase scene as a runaway orphan boy literally runs into the scientist's lab where he becomes an apprentice. A wonderful period piece! 9 & up. Also top rated: Galileo, in which a young prince comes to study with the scientist; Leonardo and his dream of being able to fly; Einstein: Light to the Power of 2 portrays a bigoted teacher, a young black girl in the '50s, and the world-famous scientist who befriends her. 9 & up.
