    Below is an interesting documentary on the Polgar sisters, with emphasis on Judit. The narrator has a somewhat irritating voice, but a fascinating look at these amazing ladies.

    The irritating voice is probably due to the crappy sound recording.

    It also helped that Judit has an IQ of around 170

    I heard an irritating laugh, but had no issues with the voice. I might watch their video on Morphy too. The analysis of Polgar's games was instructive and the history jibed with what I know.

    Susan Polgar's book, Breaking Through should have been mentioned even though it exhibits the worst copy editing of any of the 2000+ books on my shelves.

    There is a more professional documentary on the Polgar family that I saw recently at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. It has not received wide distribution yet.

    The parents and all of the sisters cooperated with the film maker. Very nice film.
