From what I know, a reasonably complete rendition of events
15 August 2005 | by (Lowell, Mich. U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I do not like this rank voting because so much can go into a film that to "average out" the features would possibly be unfair. For instance -- and very briefly -- I rated the new THE WAR OF THE WORLDS "spectacular" in recent conversation. But that would be about . . . it.

GLORY ENOUGH FOR ALL actually brought that lump in the throat at one point when I first saw it on MASTERPIECE THEATRE, when they finally knew they Had It. Cooke introduced the movie as a rare departure from British offerings, this Commonwealth, and frankly much more Canadian offerings should find their way to American television. GLORY ENOUGH is an excellent example.

(Sir) Frederick is shown with all his warts. The academic politics involving MacLeod was completely unknown to me, as was the amazing intersection with the famous Hughes family in the United States. I am fascinated with -- or a sucker for -- stories of human creativity, and biomedical research is as dramatic as anything we do. Throw in the elements of the young underdogs struggling with questions abandoned by better-equipped researchers, then the rivalries that can plague academic inquiry (they are personally no better than the rest of us), and you have a story of epic proportions.

Unlike the story of the Dion "quints," you will not see this on gringo prime time television. No use losing your audience with their remote changers during the brief exposition on endocrinology. Warning: there is no gun play or a car chase, and no smash-bang scene cuts. FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.
