Fascinating curio if you are interested in the history of nuclear weapons
Interesting short length documentary (with a running time less than 20 minutes) made in 1946 by the March of Time series about America's Manhattan Project with the nuclear scientists reenacting the scenes of their momentous work just a year after the Hiroshima bomb. We see Einstein, Oppenheimer, Fermi, Szilard, Lawrence, Compton, Urey, Rabi, Vannevar Bush, General Groves and others playing themselves. One memorable scene has some of the reputable scientists reenacting a scene where they duck to the ground for cover when the Trinity test bomb is about to explode. And also reenacted are some of the administrative maneuvering needed to get the bomb project started. If you are interested in the subject of the history of the atomic bomb, this is an interesting curiosity for this fact, not for the scientific stuff that is more or less elementary.
