On the 20-21 May 1927, a young aviator made the first non-stop solo transatlantic flight from Paris to New York aboard his aircraft Spirit of St. Louis. Overnight, Charles A. Lindbergh became the world's best-known aviator and a great American hero for generations to come. In this unique DVD, Daniel Costelle & Isabelle Clarke delve into the world's archives to illustrate in colour (with some previously unseen footage and state-of-the-art 3D animation), the exciting story of this heroic exploit and the strange life of the former stunt pilot nicknamed The Flying Fool . The film retraces all the phases of the flight - and its preparation - visually conveying the incredible suspense of these 33 hours and 30 minutes over the Atlantic. Alone above the ocean, Lindbergh was tormented by lack of sleep, at the mercy of the elements, equipped with only the most rudimentary navigation instruments and without any means of communication. His life hung by a thread... and his skills as an aviator. The briefest moment of inattention, the slightest sign of drowsiness could mean certain death... Charles Lindbergh In Colour also examines other aspects of Lindbergh s extraordinary life, including the great tragedy of his son s kidnap and murder, which was to become one of the most famous crime stories of the 20th century. Here too revealed is his influential link with Freemasonry, his secret life with three women, his chilling flirtation with Nazism and his fascination with Adolf Hitler
