Madame Curie is one of the most endearing films on love and the dedication of scientists in their pursuit of discovery and knowledge. The DVD arrived in pristine condition well before the expected delivery date and makes a wonderful addition to my collection of treasured films.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Movies July 20 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Greer Garson does an excellent job playing the role of twice Nobel Prize Winner, Marie Curie. Walter Pidgeon partners with her character as Pierre Curie. Based on the book by the Curies' daughter, the movie is a scientific masterpiece. I was amazed at the detail provided of their investigations of the new element. The coverage of their family life makes the movie a careful balance into personal lives and work. A great teaching tool for any teenager interested in science, especially a young woman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine biography of famed French scientist Dec 1 1998
Format:VHS Tape
This MGM-produced biography of French scientist Marie Curie is produced with the usual studio gloss. Film drags at times and presumambly plays fast and loose with the facts, but still worth a look, especially for great teaming of Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon, who has some of his best moments here; his proposal scene is classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talented cast makes bio romantic & entertaining. May 30 2005
By R. Christenson / Lunamation - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I thought this might only interest science enthusiasts or real film buffs, but the acting and chemistry between Greer Garson (Mrs. Miniver) and Walter Pidgeon (Forbidden Planet) really make science romantic. There are other stars in the supporting cast, and they all do a great job bringing this slice of science history to life, including Robert Walker (Strangers on a Train), Van Johnson (30 Seconds Over Tokyo), Henry Travers (It's A Wonderful Life), C.Aubrey Smith (Beyond Tomorrow, Five Came Back), and Margaret O'Brien (Meet Me In St. Louis). My favorite movies of this type are Edison The Man with Spencer Tracy, and Young Tom Edison with Mickey Rooney; but the sheer quantity of raw talent makes Madame Curie just as good as those favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garson was a pro Aug. 29 2006
By TexasReview - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Greer Garson, a well-educated and highly intelligent person in her own right, studied long and meticulously to become thoroughly familiar with the laboratory appartus and experimental processes. I think it shows in the film. I am also quite sure she could have produced a fine Polish accent, but I think studios at that time weren't necessarily interested in that. Another fine performance from the great Greer Garson. Worth every penny and every second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Garson's films out on DVD, slowly but (hopefully) surely! Sept. 29 2006
By Gibby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Madame Currie" finally comes to us on DVD after a slow trickle of Greer Garson's films of the early forties, when she was one of the biggest stars on the MGM lot. Sure this film has flaws, but if you want pure facts, read a history book on the subject. Those of us familiar with MGM's grand treatment of this kind of biographical picture expect the melodrama, the lush costumes and scenery and all that entails. But we do get a glorious Greer Garson performance, an Oscar nominated portrait of a strong, intelligent and caring woman.

Miss Garson had an amazing string of five consecutive Best Actess nominations from 1941 through 1945. While other deserving actresses get the grand "box set" treatments (Davis, Crawford, Garbo, etc.), it's a shame the powers that be haven't honored Miss Garson with the same respect. Yes, we're happy we've finally gotten "Random Harvest," "Mrs. Miniver" and "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" on DVD, and recently "Pride and Prejudice," but we still hope and patiently wait for those other great early forties Oscar nominated films to be released on DVD: "Blossoms in the Dust," "Mrs. Parkington" and "The Valley of Descion" from '41, '44 and '45, respectively. One would hope that all the many Greer Garson fans can create enough groundswell support for this great actress to have all these great films eventually released on DVD. She deserves the treatment she earned: that of a true star and legend, as well as being one of the best actresses in the business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madame Curie Jan. 3 2006

Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the best videos showing the life of Marie Curie. Although it is in black and white, my students don't get too bored.
