Gregory Marquette’s documentary chronicles the life of telecommunications inventor Walter L Shaw.

Walter T Shaw produced the film and Frank Langella narrates the story.

“Freestyle Releasing was immediately moved by the incredible story of Walter L Shaw, a man whose name we should all know,” said Freestyle Releasing co-president Mark Borde. “We hope to finally bring this brilliant inventor the recognition he deserves.”

Genius On Hold is a labour of love for my father,” said Walter T Shaw. “My dream is through this documentary that people will finally understand how my father’s inventions are a part of their daily lives.”
