An Original Vintage 7" x 9" [18 x 23 cm] News Photo (Learn More)

Howard Hughes was the director/producer/businessman/aviator (he was nicknamed "The World's Greatest Womanizer") known for his casinos, his strange behavior, and for his airplane Hercules (nicknamed "The Spruce Goose"). He produced several movies including the classics Scarface, Hell's Angels, His Kind of Woman, and The Outlaw. Entire books can and have been written about his life beyond the movies that he made, but he was a world champion aviator, setting both the speed record for an airplane in 1937, and in 1938 setting the fastest around-the-world flight record! He passed away in 1976 at the age of 70. Towards the end of his life he was a recluse, plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well as possible allodynia (where normal tasks cause excruciating pain).
Important Added Info: Note that this news photo measures 7" x 9" [18 x 23 cm].
