Storyline

Mauchly: The Computer and the Skateboard tells the story of what happens to the inventor as the huge potential of his invention begins to dawn on those around him: From the triumphant unveiling and first successful operations of the ENIAC to the crushing blow of being stripped of the patent. Co-Directors Jim Reed, who is John Mauchly's grandson, and Paul David weave archival footage together with interviews of Mauchly's colleagues and friends to create an eclectic homage to Mauchly and a new perspective on the history of computation. It should be noted that this film contains the only available footage anywhere of John Mauchly himself speaking about the first modern computer. Written by Erica David
