Lindy's Mom

LINDY OFF TO SOUTH AMERICA; TAKES HIS MOTHER TO CAPITOL STORY LINE: Charles Lindbergh is about to open a new airmail route to the Southern Hemisphere. His mother, Mrs. Evangeline Lindbergh, accompanies him as far as Washington, DC. SCRIPT: “Lindy and his mother. She’s got a great chauffeur. As soon as he brings his new plane here from the coast he gives his mother a ride. You know, Mrs. Lindbergh, Sr. is a teacher of chemistry. Well, here goes mamma into the rumble seat with Lindy helping her. A cop tries to help him with his parachute but Lindy writes his own ticket. Only a few minutes now and he’ll be off on another wonderful flight. That boy just can’t stay on the ground. Sometimes I think he’s got tender feet. Here’s a couple of good-bye close-ups and before they start Lindy looks over to see that his mother is comfy. His plane is bright red and she’s a beauty. She skims along and first thing you know the ground is left behind. Lindy’s going to blaze a new airmail route from New York to the Canal Zone. And when he blazes ’em they stay blazed. Good luck, Lindy!” Location: Roosevelt Field, NY; Release Date: 04/26/30 (0:54)
