An historical documentary about engineer, industrialist, and innovator George Westinghouse (1846-1914) is being released by ALGOR‘s (Pittsburgh, PA) wholly owned subsidiary, Inecom Entertainment Company.
George Westinghouse is considered America’s greatest industrialist, states the release; his victory over Thomas Edison during the Battle of the Currents set the stage for the entire future of electric power. The Westinghouse air brake, considered one of the most important inventions in history, is complemented by his other inventions including automobile shock absorbers and railroad signaling.
The documentary, “Westinghouse,” was filmed in cooperation with the George Westinghouse Museum and contains rare footage, industrial films, and photos previously kept within the Westinghouse archives.
The documentary will be released on DVD on April 8, 2008. Visit Westinghouse Film for more information.
