“Dad always used to say, when you’re safe… you’re dead.” – Tonie Carter

Number of Times Seen – 1 (20 May 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Fictionalized look at the life of Amelia Earhart and how she became such a pioneer in the field of female aviators.

Bottom Line – Great premise that isn’t as engaging as could be. Rosalind Russell is great in the lead role of Earhart and makes us see the kind of personality that she had. Fred MacMurray is also great here and helps thing move along. The film is able to show what kind of strong willed and strong minded woman Earhart was which helps us understand why she was so adamant to be such a pioneer in the field of female fliers. The story is a bit too long and has too many scenes that drag along which is a shame because some tighter editing could have made this even more powerful a story.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Fictionalized account of the story and disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
