  • Made-for-TV movie starring Diane Keaton and Rutger Hauer.
  • IMDB entry.

"This film is just a recycling of the mountain of myth that has surrounded Amelia Earhart's disappearance: she was on a spying mission (although she didn't know it, her husband was approached to pump her for information about Japanese activity in the Pacific); she and her navigator Fred Noonan disliked each other; Noonan was an unreliable alcoholic; she was panicky and low on fuel towards the end of the flight and ended it by deliberately ditching her aircraft."[1]
