Shutter Island

Wandering among the shelves of the video store, I happened to pick this DVD off the shelf. Only I misread the title as "Shelter Island." Finally, I thought, somebody made a movie about those heroic days of Quantum Electrodynamics in 1947 and Martin Scorcese even directed. Not a bad cast - Di Caprio was obviously Schwinger and I suppose Mark Ruffalo would be Feynman. Max von Sydow - who - maybe Rabi and Ben Kingsley as Oppenheimer of course. But I couldn't figure out who was playing Bethe and Wheeler.

Of course the movie turned out to be about something a lot more boring, so I put it back.
