An insult to a brave woman
30 January 2001 | by (Solihull, England) – See all my reviews

This film is just a recycling of the mountain of myth that has surrounded Amelia Earhart's disappearance: she was on a spying mission (although she didn't know it, her husband was approached to pump her for information about Japanese activity in the Pacific); she and her navigator Fred Noonan disliked each other; Noonan was an unreliable alcoholic; she was panicky and low on fuel towards the end of the flight and ended it by deliberately ditching her aircraft.

Sorry, dear viewer. There is no evidence at all that Earhart was a spy, or that the Japanese were up to no good in the South Pacific four years before WWII. She and Noonan liked and respected each other. Noonan was probably the foremost aerial navigator in the world at that time (he pioneered Pan-Am's China Clipper route across the Pacific) and a consummate professional. The last messages heard from the aircraft indicate that Earhart was still in control of herself, following her contingency plan. At this time she would have had enough fuel for another four hours flying time.

I'm afraid this film is a conspiracy-theorist's fantasy extravaganza.
