TESLA - If the definition of a tragic figure is that the figure holds the roots of his own demise within his own belief system, Nikola Tesla is one of America's true tragic figures. So smart in the ways of science, yet so myopic in the ways of romance, Tesla sowed the seeds of his own demise with his belief that "I do not believe an inventor should marry, because he has so intense a nature, with so much in it of wild, passionate quality, that in giving himself to a woman he might love, he would give everything and so take everything from his chosen field." TESLA, potentially a 2-part movie-of-the week, is an adventure in turn-of the century New York that changes civilization forever, but not as much as it might have. © (Drama) Origination date: 13 June 1988
