This edition of The American Experience examines the life of Amelia Earhart, one of America's pioneering aviatrixes. Narrated by Kathy Bates, the video takes a long look at the events of Earhart's life. The film also traces the arc of the publicity surrounding Earhart, and shows how her awareness of her own importance as a symbol may have led her to take chances she shouldn't have. The video uses a combination of interviews and footage to construct an engaging portrait. Those with an interest in aviation or pioneering women will likely find it of value.
