In Search of Amelia Earhart

No, Amelia Earhart hasn’t been found wandering the streets along with Jim Morrison and Marilyn Monroe—instead, her legacy is being showcased in an exhibit filled with personal memorabilia from the late “Lady Lindy” (1897-1937). “In Search of Amelia Earhart” also includes a scrap from her doomed Lockheed Electra, newsreels, and archival material from the life of the pioneering aviator, bestselling author, clothing designer, and media darling. (A corona on the planet Venus was even named in her honor.) The exhibit coincides with last Friday’s release of the biopic Amelia, with the ill-fated flyer played by Hilary Swank, who previously got Oscars for dying in Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby. Anyone else sense a pattern here? LAUREN LYNCH
