I wasn't expecting this one. Hillary Sw@nk looks rather like Earhart too.

Interesting woman. She once said to her husband; If I go, I want it to be fast... and I want to be in my plane. Hope she got her wish.

Ah Amelia! I thought you meant the other movie called Amélie (Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain)

Nah, not that one. Edited the title to avoid confusion. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You're right.
They did do a pretty good job making Hillary look like her.

At 5' 5" Hillary is a couple of inches shorter than Amelia though, which surprised me.
I didn't know Amelia was that tall.

I am sooo looking forward to this movie... as a boy I had such a crush on Amelia Earhart I did a book report on her in the 6th or 7th grade.. and that was it..

I also think that Hillary Sw@nk is one of the most underrated actresses in the business.. and she is d@mn good looking to boot... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

I'm going off topic here I know, but I think Bearcat's post illustrates exactly why the autocensor absolutely must be fixed. It turns a minor compliment to a screen actress into a near-pornographic obcenity (with or without the http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif)

Unless it was intentional, in which case I shall report Bearcat to himself. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hey, Bearcat, keep your grubby paws off my posts... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Back on topic, definitely a film to see, though given Hollywoods' recent track record, I wouldn't expect 100% historical accuracy...

Richard Gere is in this movie?
I didn't know that.
He owns a home not far from me.

Why do they put her *** straight in the center of the poster? Gosh, annoying. Worst poster ever.

Well, if you look closely, you can see a subtle image of a woman taking on a role dominate by man.
