Truth be told, Carol Langer was doing research for another film when she stumbled upon the silent enemy in Ottawa, IL, and then as a result, she made the film "Radium City". Back in the 1920's, young women had jobs to paint clock dials with radium-dipped brushes. The interview includes personal narratives and accounts from the film.
