American aviator Amelia Earhart’s courageous exploits and spirited personality made her an international celebrity. She set numerous speed and altitude records before disappearing mysteriously in 1937 during an attempted around-the-world flight. This program, inspired by Earhart's books, including “The Fun of It” and “Last Flight,” reviews her upbringing, the records she broke, and her tireless work to promote opportunities for women.
