Miss Garson had an amazing string of five consecutive Best Actess nominations from 1941 through 1945. While other deserving actresses get the grand "box set" treatments (Davis, Crawford, Garbo, etc.), it's a shame the powers that be haven't honored Miss Garson with the same respect. Yes, we're happy we've finally gotten "Random Harvest," "Mrs. Miniver" and "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" on DVD, and recently "Pride and Prejudice," but we still hope and patiently wait for those other great early forties Oscar nominated films to be released on DVD: "Blossoms in the Dust," "Mrs. Parkington" and "The Valley of Descion" from '41, '44 and '45, respectively. One would hope that all the many Greer Garson fans can create enough groundswell support for this great actress to have all these great films eventually released on DVD. She deserves the treatment she earned: that of a true star and legend, as well as being one of the best actresses in the business.
Madame Curie shows us, by far she is one the great heroes of the science. Well documented portrait, supported by a fine direction of Melvin Le Roy, as well as the unerring chemistry between my beloved Green Carson (one of the five top American actresses any age) and Walter Pigdeon as his lovable and loyal husband.
The final sequence when she makes that brief but remarkable speech is simply anthological.
Despite the fact that pitifully this movie competed with Casablanca, Carson and Pigdeon received deserved nominations (being defeated by Jennifer Jones and Paul Lukas, respectively) and Le Roy by Michael Curtiz, this haunting film will mark you forever.

Greer Garson is my favorite actress. I love all her movies. This is a great one! I show it to my high school students, they appreciate scientists better after watching this one.Published 1 month ago by Kathleen Szczepaniak
It was ok but I thought with the cast and the subject matter that it would have more depth. It didn't go in to much detail or would just flat out leave out important parts of her... Read morePublished 1 month ago by LITTLEONEINCT
Another great science biopic. What I appreciated was how Madame Curie didn't give up when most people would have stopped thinking they had gotten close enough. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Mike
