Program Description

When 25-year-old pilot Charles A. Lindbergh made the first solo flight across the Atlantic in 1927, he became an icon of the modern age, but the struggle to wear the mantle of legend and live an ordinary life proved to be a consuming one. The producers received unprecedented cooperation from the Lindbergh family and conducted interviews with Anne Morrow Lindbergh for this look at a very complex man. Stacy Keach narrates.
