Synopsis

Howard Hughes: The Man & the Madness
One of America's most fascinating public figures is profiled in this documentary. As an inventor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Hughes lived a varied and famous life. He inherited his grand oil fortune at the age of 17 and quickly took off for Hollywood, but the film industry wasn't Hughes' only interest. He excelled in aviation, having set a speed record in an airplane of his own design. One of his inventions, the push-up bra, re-energized women's fashions. Through archival footage and interviews, this release traces the path Hughes took from stardom to self-imposed obscurity. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
