Description by OLDIES.com:
In the 1930s and early '40s, fans flocked to biopics. So Hollywood had a great idea: take the stars of Boys Town and reteam them - with a twist - to tell the compelling life story of America's greatest inventor, Thomas Edison. So Mickey Rooney portrayed Young Tom Edison and Spencer Tracy headlined Edison, the Man. The films opened two months apart, and each garnered huge, enthusiastic audiences. In this tale of Edison's youth, Tom's scientific curiosity and experiments gone wrong are subjects of scorn in his hometown... and in his family. Tom shows heroism in the face of great danger, and even invents a device to help the doctor save his mother's life. But will that be enough to win over the folks who call him addled?
Mickey Rooney stars as the young boy who grew up to become America's greatest inventor in this biographical film based on his early life.

Great Movie Movie Lover: Nancy from Albuquerque, New Mexico -- April, 17, 2010
I loved this movie. I felt like I really got to know and understand what Edison must have gone through in his life. Mickey Rooney was a terrific choice for this role.
