Synopsis

The True Story of The Aviator

Howard Robard Hughes, Jr. (1905-1976) was a billionaire businessman, a pioneer of aviation and an award-winning film producer. He dabbled in politics. He developed the first “flying boat,” the push-up bra and the automatic hospital bed. He was adept at turning his hobbies into lucrative industries.

Yet, despite all of his successes, he had no true friends or family. Hughes bizarre obsessive-compulsive disorders and drug abuse increased, as he cut himself off from the outside world. When he passed away in 1976, it was a sad end to an amazing life and an unrivalled business powerhouse.

This MPI original production takes a look at the rise and fall of the Hughes empire. Through the archival footage and interviews with the few people who had contact with him, unravel some of the mysteries surrounding one of the richest men of the 20th century.
