Flash of Genius

Watched a good DVD the other night called Flash of Genius  based on a true story about a Dr. Robert Keans and his invention of intermittent wipers and taking that concept to the Ford Motor Company who consequently stole his patented idea. He spent much of his life fighting the corporation to get the recognition that he was the original inventor of the concept.  Through his determinedness and single-mindedness he won in the end, but at the detriment of his family, and also leading to a nervous breakdown which he recovered from and won the fight eventually.
