I don't know haw the producers of this movie re-created this event managed to get the equipment to do this, but, in my view, they did an excellent job of it.
I enjoyed watching how Edison, and, his crew invented the light bulb, and, kept an eye to see how long it would last in his laboratory.
While there may be minor inefficientcies on some of it, including on the phonograph, the movie, as a whole was well done. Spencer Tracy did a fine acting job of his part of Edison, and, the other actors who portrayed other people he was associated with also did a fine job.
I highly reccommend this movie to everyone...It is an accurate account of the inventor's life, as a whole...
