George Westinghouse on Screen for First Time

George Westinghouse is considered America's greatest industrialist and the only man who would go up against Thomas Edison, and win.

His victory over Edison during the Battle of the Currents set the stage for the entire future of electric power. The Westinghouse air brake is considered one of the most important inventions in history and saved countless lives.

Writer, Director and Producer Mark Bussler has produced the first and only documentary film about George Westinghouse that brings this forgotten role model to the screen. (Information and trailer available at

"Westinghouse" is a feature-length documentary that features rare and never before seen footage, industrial films and photos previously buried deep within the Westinghouse archives.

The film is currently available on DVD via preorder on and will be on sale at Internet retailers and retail stores nationwide on April 8th. Additionally, “Westinghouse” will premiere on screen at the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Sunday, April 13, 2008 at 1 pm. A panel discussion will follow.
