A wondrful movie and untold story
21 November 2018 | by pdilleSee all my reviews

This is an incredible historical story - completely untold and eclipses the likes of Amelia Earhart. The filmmaker's were witty in their telling of the story. It was well researched with unbelievable old photos and clippings. Anyone who loves stories about the old American movies, the history of flying, incredible women trailblazing their time, tomboy stories or stories of the American west will simply adore this film. It's a gift to American history and a gem of a picture.
