A brilliant scientist, a pioneering woman in a field closed to her gender, a woman who shares a passion for discovery with her husband-a passion that will cause the death of the love of her life-Academy Award winner Greer Garson stars as Madame Curie. Behind the discovery of radioactivity lies the story of Marie (Garson-Mrs. Miniver, Sunrise at Campobello) and Pierre Curie (Walter Pidgeon-Mrs. Miniver, Executive Suite)-a moving, human story of two people who love each other as much as their great work. Their meeting as scientist and student, their hesitant courtship and ultimate marriage joins the two in both heart and mind as they work together on what seems a hopeless task. Success comes at last, but there is little time to savor their triumph-for although their work has opened a new field of science to the world, it has cost Pierre his life.
