Meet the Stars, A Cast Made By History
Meet Amelia Earhart, Al Capone, Theodore Roosevelt, Albert Einstein and George Armstrong Custer. The real-life stories of these American heroes are better than fiction.

Earhart is one of the most famous aviators in history. Her nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic in 1932, the first for a woman, established her reputation as an outstanding pilot. She disappeared while attempting an around-the-world flight in 1937, at age 39.
