Summary
Edwin Land was perhaps the most important yet least known inventor and technology entrepreneur in American history. Land's most famous achievement was the creation of a revolutionary film and camera system that could produce a photographic print moments after the picture was taken. Fierstein takes you behind the scenes of this reclusive genius's legal battles over intellectual property: Polaroid versus Kodak
