What does it mean to be a performing artist - first, last and always? Broadway legend Elaine Stritch can answer that. At 87, Stritch is still here, dominating the stage in her one woman cabaret act, torturing Alec Baldwin on 30ROCK, giving us her take on aging, her struggle with alcohol and diabetes, and the fear of leaving the follow spot behind. In stolen moments from her corner room at the Carlyle, and on breaks from her tour and work, candid reflections about her life are punctuated with rare archival footage, words from friends (Hal Prince, George C. Wolfe, Nathan Lane, Cherry Jones and John Turturro) and photographs from her personal collection. By turns bold, hilarious and achingly poignant, the journey connects Stritch's present to her past, and an inspiring portrait of a one-of-a-kind survivor emerges.

The final nine years in the life of Kansas-born aviatrix Amelia Earhart (1897-1937) is presented. This phase of her flying career included publisher George Putnam recruiting her to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic albeit solely as "commander" i.e. as a passenger, her want truly to be in her mind the first woman to fly across the Atlantic by doing it solo despite several others perishing in the attempt before and after the only successful solo flight to date by Charles A. Lindbergh, and the two attempts to circumnavigate the globe, the final attempt which would lead to her presumed death as her plane was never found. What was often seen as her reckless flying decisions to those around her are also demonstrated. Interspersed with these flying landmarks are her need to raise money to finance her flights by writing books, doing endorsements and making public appearances, all which she abhorred. Her relationships with several people are also presented, including with: Putnam, who was also her manager and eventual husband; fellow aviator Gene Vidal, with who she had a love affair known to George; Fred Noonan, her celestial navigator for the two global flights, his skill as such which was balanced by his excessive drinking; and young Elinor Smith, with who she had a love/hate relationship solely because Smith aspired to take her place as the world's premier aviatrix.
