He developed the first microphone and motion picture projector and was one of the first to make pictures talk. Then too he is responsible for the bulb that is lighting your living room right now. This play however which is adapted from the Metro Goldwyn Meyer screen success is not a scientific report. It is an exciting tale of the adventures of a small town boy with a pack of original ideas, which keep in hot water. As a boy Edison was a kind of Andy Hardy, which makes the casting the obvious choice of Mickey Rooney.
