several years ago, I found this photograph in the Westinghouse archives in Wilmington, PA. It sat in a folder labelled “Tesla Personal belongings”, and no further information attached to it. In my opinion, the lady pictured could possibly be Mrs Dorothy Skeritt, sectretary to Mr Tesla for a long time. Does anybody has another clue? What about the footer, “. Jun 68 .”? Would love to get some feedback. Thank you.

Here is some news about latest developments in Tesla movies: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fragments-From-Olympus-The-Vision-of-Nikola-Tesla/181802521854082 with trailers @YouTube et al. I can’t ignore the feeling that this film (“Tower to The People”) will tell the story of Tesla’s vision of wireless transmission of energy, and the utterly uninteresting Tesla FBI case, again. To transpose Tesla’s magnificent, century-old vision into today’s world would have been a greater challenge to meet. Another film is in the pipeline, too: “Tesla- Ruler of the World”, produced by Vladimir Rajcic, with Nicolas Cage as Edison and, of course, Christian Bale as Tesla. One can only hope for the best. Matthew Inman’s bestselling book “How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You” is available in Germany now. Maybe Mr. Inman’s spirit will spark up both film productions. Cross fingers. The photography shows the superconducting high-frequency TESLA cavity that will be used for the new world-class linear collider, developed at DESY, Hamburg, with some Tesla in the background.
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), the famous futurist inventor and showman, is the star of this feature documentary by Tesla expert Michael Krause.

At long last, finally, Wardenclyffe laboratory has been saved. With tremendous help from the world-wide Tesla community, fueled by enthusiasm and under guidance from Mrs Jane Alcorn, Friends of Science East, and others, Wardenclyffe property was bought from AGFA Corporation. Now, the real journey begins: what to do with the laboratory, sketched out by Stanford White, ruined by Peerless Photo Co., saved from becoming playground for the local fire brigade? Wardenclyffe is the only remaining laboratory of Nikola Tesla; it is a gem of East coast industrial architecture – but there is nothing left than bricks and mortar, and maybe the spirit of Tesla’s. May the new owners be guided by the significance of this place, and what it could mean for the future, an energy option based on sustainability and clean energy.

Finally the new documentary film about the world-famous inventor, “Nikola Tesla – Visionary of Modern Times” (2012, 52 Minutes), is available for download at the online platform docsonline: http://docsonline.tv/
In this film, the true story of the rise and fall of the techno genius Nikola Tesla is told, based on facts. Myth and folklore add spice to the portrait of the man who envisioned the modern world, and who even thought about making use of the abundant energy of the Universe.
In Hollywood, a production company headed by Mr Branko Lustig is actually trying to get financing closed on a new film about the life and times of Nikola Tesla. Rumor has it that Christian Bale is in close contact with the group gathered around the “Untitled Nikola Tesla Project”.
Inevitably, Rade Serbedzija will have to do a remake of his role in the 1970′s TV series from former Yugoslavia, where he played the elderly Tesla, not without dignity and insight.

This Ridley Scott Associates prod features Nikola Tesla’s secret code hidden in the neon sign of New Yorker Hotel. Episode 3 has some Tesla stuff. They re-built the sign on a sound stage, of course. Here’s the original.
