6. Thomas A. Edison : father of invention / produced by Paul Budline Productions, History Television Network Productions, H-TV ; written and directed by Paul Budline.   Publication: [S.l.] : A & E Television Networks, 1996 , Life in the modern world would be unthinkable without his inventions. More than any other individual, he paved the way for the future. Thomas Alva Edison has rightly earned a place among the most important men in history. His inventions the light bulb, phonograph and movie camera, among many others literally transformed the world. But countless myths have sprung up around Edison, and his private life was a marked contrast to his success as an inventor. BIOGRAPHY reveals the complete story, from the long quest to develop the light bulb to the devastating affect his fame had on his home life. Hear Edison's great-grandson speculate that the inventor's self-absorption led his first wife to commit suicide, and learn the truth about his supposed lack of schooling. Rare films made by Edison himself show the inventor at work, and Edison scholars tell the little known stories behind some of his 1,049 patents. From his Midwestern childhood to international acclaim, this is the fascinating story of "the Wizard of Menlo Park." Date: 1996 Availability: No items available:
