  "It's My Turn" is only one of the films featuring mathematicians on
Oliver Knill's wonderful website Mathematics in the Movies
http://www.math.harvard.edu/~knill/mathmovies/
However, there is one film not yet there: the 2004 BBC TV drama "Hawking"
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hawking-DVD-Benedict-Cumberbatch/dp/B0002W0YKW/ref=sr_1_4?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1289071748&sr=1-4
There is a clip of the scene in which Roger Penrose introduces Hawking 
to the joys of topology on

and the text is on
