Amelia HD movie trailer:

After becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, Amelia was thrust into a new role as America's sweetheart - the legendary "goddess of light," known for her bold, larger-than-life charisma. Yet, even with her global fame solidified, her belief in flirting with danger and standing up as her own, outspoken woman never changed. She was an inspiration to people everywhere, from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt to the men closest to her heart: her husband, promoter and publishing magnate George P. Putnam, and her long time friend and lover, pilot Gene Vidal. In the summer of 1937, Amelia set off on her most daunting mission yet: a solo flight around the world that she and George both anxiously foresaw as destined, whatever the outcome, to become one of the most talked-about journeys in history.

  1. Timeship Says,

    FINALLY a Hollywood movie about a great flight explorer, who deserves more than just two feature films about her life! I'm not sure this is a remake of the 1976 TV film, staring Susan Clark, but unfortunately it's nowhere to find even on VHS ;-( If anyone finds it anywhere in the English-speaking world, please let me know!
