Golf great Bobby Jones is seen dominating the greens in 1930. Enrico Caruso sails for Italy after a triumphant tour of America. Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford marry in 1920 and create Pickfair, the showplace of Hollywood. "Machine Gun" Kelly is captured by Federal agents in 1933, ending the worst crime spree in history. Amelia Earhart is the first woman aviator to fly solo across the Pacific in 1935. Franklin Delano Roosevelt survives an assassination attempt and becomes our 32nd President in 1933. The career of General John J. Pershing, commander of American forces in World War I is recounted. Greta Garbo returns to New York. William Randolph Hearst appears at a Senate hearing.
