Howard Hughes: The Real Aviator

The definitive Howard Hughes story, told in his own words. Through his personal letters, archival footage and revealing interviews with those who knew him firsthand, Hughes' own words bear witness to his legendary aviation records and crashes, his Hollywood pursuits both on and off the set, his taking on the U.S. government and to his conquering of RKO studios, TWA and Las Vegas. From his early successes to his tortured later years and, finally, to his untimely and suspicious death, "The Real Aviator" uncovers the real Howard Hughes.
