Fictionalized biography of Amelia Earhart (here called Tonie Carter). First, a flagwaving preface about air warfare in the Pacific; then flashing back to her first solo flight in 1932; whirlwind romance with sexist ace pilot Randy Britton; advanced training; a transcontinental race; world fame; first, aborted round-the-world flight; and her famous disappearance. This film popularized the theory that Earhart's disappearance was connected with secret work for the U.S. Navy. —Rod Crawford <email@example.com>
This is a fun Movie
This is a fun movie of thirties aviation. The mid air between Randy and Tonie is laughable and fake. That aside I enjoy the tone and the simple enjoyment of the movie for what it was, a WWII war movie. Randy (Fred Mac Murry) and Tonie fall for each other with the background of thirties type air racing and breaking records as their goals. Then when a special assignment comes up to look for a "missing pilot" over the Japanese mandated islands, they both volunteer. Overall this is one of my favorite movies for this type. The Japanese hotel manager - as a Jap spy- is so typical as to be laughable. But this movie is not about realism or political correctness.
