        I would like to agree with Don Larsson.  I saw the Mdame Curie
movie that he mentioned in my high school chemistry class last year.  After
finishing the film our teacher asked the class for comments.  Everyone
single student in the class agreed that it was entertaining as well as
educational.  It was great to study about Madame Curie and her discoveries
and then watching the video.  The video is in a black and white format,
however my teacher found it at our local video rental store.  If you choose
to use it, please let me know how you and/or your class enjoyed it.
