I was A Jet Set Stewardess
1 x 60'
The 1960s were the golden age of jet air travel. Pilots were war heroes who looked like matinee idols, air stewardesses looked like movies stars, and passengers were served seven-course meals with a cocktail. Every child dreamed of working on an airline, and the new age of air travel seemed to encapsulate the optimism, the glamour and the new consumerism of the decade.
The invention of the jet engine coincided with everything the 60s stood for: increased leisure time, the cult of celebrity, fashion, good food, and fun! Air travel was still just for those who could afford it, but suddenly upwardly mobile families were taking to the skies.
This film relives this glamorous age through the testimonies and personal archive of those who pioneered the jet set lifestyle.
