The Radium Girls, the dramatic re-telling of the young women who worked at the U.S. Radium Corp in the 1920-30s applying glowing paint to the faces of clocks, instrument gauges, and wristwatches for the United States Radium Company using the newly discovered element Radium.
Mixed with the right kind of paint, radium would luminesce after exposure to light, so that a watch face painted with the stuff could soak up energy during the day and stay visible all night long. It was one of the scientific miracles of a very optimistic age. That is, until girls at the factory started getting sick and turned to the owner of the company to take responsibility for their illnesses and impending deaths.
