To Die Alone like an Elephant, or, Honeymoon with a Hearse at the Door

Beginning in 1917, the Radium Luminous Material Corporation produced luminous, glowing paint called “Undark” paint, containing radioactive Radium. This company also had a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to provide watches to soldiers that they could see in the dark.

At the height of producing glow-in-the-dark watches, about 4,000 workers, mostly female, were busy dipping camel hair brushes into small crucibles of a radium and glue mixture and bringing the brush to a sharp point by turning it between their lips. They were paid three cents for painting two dials, aiming for 250 dials a day. Many of the ‘Radium Girls’ also painted their fingernails with radium, and some painted their cheeks with the luminous paint.

Doctor Sabin A. Von Sochocky, the inventor of the wrist watch radium dial died of radium poisoning in November of 1928, and as the first workers began dying in large numbers, the company tried to blame other things for their deaths. In 1937, when this movie was filmed, radium poisoning was in newspaper headlines around the country. Five women hired attorney Leonard Grossman to represent them in court seeking damages for their illness.

This romantic comedy used those headlines to build a story around a ‘radium girl.’ Carole Lombard is Hazel Flagg, working in a watch factory in Vermont. Her doctor tells her that she is dying soon from radium poisoning, and a hot-shot New York City newspaper reporter decides to bring her to the big city so that her final days can be full of the wonder of New York City nightlife. The newspaper will have great stories and increased circulation, and a dying girl can have the time of her life, . . . what’s left of it. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.S
