Storyline

Biopic of the famed scientist and the work she did with her husband Pierre in the discovery of radium. Marie was a student at the Sorbonne studying for her Master's degree in physics when they first met. She received permission to use space in Professor Pierre Curie's laboratory. They soon fall in love and are married, working together on trying to isolate a radioactive substance Marie has identified as radium. Years of painstaking research and experimentation led to success and Marie and Pierre Curie shared the Nobel Prize in Physics. Sadly, Pierre was killed crossing the street in the rain when he was run over by a horse and wagon. Marie continued to work and make major contributions to science. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In her final years at MGM, Joan Crawford was handed weak scripts in the hopes that she'd break her contract. Two films she hungered to appear in were Random Harvest (1942) and Madame Curie (1943). Both films went to bright new star Greer Garson instead, and Crawford left the studio soon after. See more »

Goofs

When Marie determines chemical composition of pitchblende, 7 minerals add to 99%, one mineral (magnesium oxide) is .99% and the "extraneous matter" of .001% all adds up to 99.991%. Presumably the mag-Ox should be .999%, otherwise, the actual extraneous matter would be 10 times greater (.01%) than Marie's stated measurement. See more »

Mrs. Miniver with test tubes!
23 September 1998 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

M-G-M Studios bought the rights to film "Madame Curie" with Greta Garbo in mind, but Garbo left the studio in 1941 and the world was plunged into the grips of World War II. The studio now worried that wartime audiences would find this story rather drab. But the casting of the magical screen team of Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon guaranteed its success. Both Garson and Pidgeon received Academy Award nominations for their performances.
