'Amelia Earhart-' The Woman that Got Away-Gone With A Wind ****
19 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Outstanding biography teaming John Forsythe and Susan Clark in the title roles of the producer, twice married, who took a chance and married the famous aviator.

Both give tremendous performances and this was certainly one of Forsyth's greatest triumphs in his professional career. He sure came a long way from "Bachelor Father."

Clark has the right spirit and is consumed in passion for her desire to fly early on in life. She makes a complex character come alive in a totally mesmerizing performance. This woman was certainly ahead of her time with regard to her ideas about the roles of women in life and in particular marriage.

With a wonderful supporting cast, this film is memorable. It dealt correctly with her tragic disappearance in 1937 since we never knew exactly what happened. Did she see something that imperial Japan didn't want her to see and pay for it with her life? No one shall ever know.
