Synopsis
Long revered for his unique vision and bold willingness to take on such a formidable figure as Thomas Edison, American industrialist George Westinghouse won the Battle of the Currents before creating what many consider to be the most important inventions in human history - the air brake. Westinghouse was once cited as "A genius who can't be downed" by none other than Andrew Carnegie, and with such innovations as automobile shock absorbers, railroad signals, and even the modern concept of the weekend to his credit, few would contest this sizable claim. Later, the quietly reserved and ceaselessly honest powerhouse would go on to found some of the most massive companies ever conceived, in the process gaining the respect of employees from the boardroom to the mailroom. Exclusive interviews with George Westinghouse Museum Executive Director Edward J. Reis, Nikolai Tesla's grandnephew Willian H. Terbo, and George Westinghouse: Gentle Genius author Dr. Quentin R. Skrabec, Jr. offer unparalleled insight into the life of the revered innovator, with previously unreleased films and photos helping to make him more instantly recognizable than ever before. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
