Rated TBC by the BBFC


Documentary about legendary film director and flying maverick Howard Hughes. Variously described as reckless, daring, inventive, eccentric and secretive, Hughes achieved an incredible amount in his lifetime: breaking several aviation records, surviving three plane crashes, building RKO Studios and TWA, and changing the face of Las Vegas forever. Told through his own words, with source material drawn from his actual memos, conversations and interviews, this documentary offers an insight into one of America's greatest pioneers. Released prior to the 2004 Scorsese biopic 'The Aviator' starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
