Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Marking the 20th anniversary of the disappearance of aviatrix Amelia Earhart, this 90-minute episode of the fine-arts anthology Omnibus devotes most of its airtime to a new dramatization of the Earhart story. Meg Mundy plays Amelia from the years 1917 to 1937, during which she develops the strong feminist values that will guide her future--and ulimately seal her fate. Sidney Carroll based his teleplay on Earhart's own writings, in private journals and flight logs. The remainder of the episode is taken up by a filmed tour of the Museum of Modern Art.
