Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer in his study at Princeton University in 1957

Fifty years after the death of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the so-called “father of the atomic bomb,” there is still power in his story of genius, politics and remorse. This archival Fishko Files was produced just as two works stressing the “mythical” telling of his story had appeared: John Adams’ opera “Dr. Atomic” and a massive new biography, “American Prometheus.” (Produced in 2005)
