Each of these movies provides a unique perspective on innovation and its power to change the world. They are sure to leave you feeling inspired to pursue your own innovative ideas.
Personally, I was surprised to see ‘The Man in the White Suit’ on the list, and not my favorite ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’, so I guess I will have to see if Netflix or Prime Video has this movie from the fifties. It sounds intriguing.
Another favorite of mine is ‘Flash of Genius’, a movie about the inventor of intermittent wipers and his painful fight against the patent infringement of the major car companies.
