Ask Slashdot: Is a Biographical movie for Grace Hopper overdue?

Dabido (802599) writes | 1 year,7 days


Dabido (802599) writes "Rear Admiral Grace Hopper is probably last centuries most important female figure in computer science, yet no one has ever made a biographical movie based on her life. There is certainly enough material to make a movie (maybe even a mini-series). She certainly has wit, charm and personality, as demonstrated by her appearance on the David Letterman show With many media stories complaining that females are under represented in the sciences, is it not time that Hollywood finally made a biographical movie of Rear Admiral Grace Hopper?"
