What Manhattan Gets Right, and Wrong, About Los Alamos

Recaps from The Atomic Heritage Foundation
“Manhattan” has now portrayed two real scientists in the show: Bohr and Oppenheimer. The actor who played Bohr, although he did a fine job, did not really look like the serious, long-faced Bohr. Daniel London, who played Oppie, does look startlingly like Oppenheimer – except for the eyes. Oppenheimer was famous for his bright blue eyes. In his interview, Dimas Chavez, a young boy at Los Alamos during the project, recalled Oppenheimer’s “majestic blue eyes.” “Manhattan” continues to portray Oppenheimer as brusque with his subordinates, but this episode also highlighted his eloquence in his toast to Bohr. We are looking forward to seeing where Oppenheimer’s storyline goes and which other real scientists the show chooses to introduce. We would love to see Richard Feynman play a prank on somber Frank Winter!
