I Was a Jet Set Stewardess – Smithsonian Documentary Film
January 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In the 1960s, jetliners changed passenger travel forever. They also changed the lives of a few fortunate women. Go back to this golden age of commercial flight, when pilots looked like movie stars, passengers ate seven-course meals, and young, charming stewardesses became the glamorous faces of the industry. Through interviews and anecdotes, we detail the evolution of the “air hostess,” how they became icons for a generation and why the jet set era opened new career horizons that many women could only dream of.
