    Very interesting story.

    I'm sure the makers of the biopic are thrilled this is being revealed right now. The cynic in me wonders if they had a hand in getting it out there.

    Interesting. I was watching Unsolved Mysteries and they did an episode about her disappearance. Their theory was that she landed on an island being controlled by the North Vietnamese and she was executed and they interviewed someone who supposedly saw the execution and a soldier who found her papers and saw the plane with the serial code.

    I'm intrigued to see it. I think they've done a great job on Swank to make her look the part and I thought it would be interesting to see how the handled this part of the mystery.

    Probably not the North Vietnamese. Japanese is likely the villainous race you're looking for.

    Interesting article, but I'm skeptical. I am by no means an expert, but watched a couple shows and read a couple articles on the topic a few months ago and the impression I came away with was that there were several different groups searching in vastly different areas and each was convinced they had irrefutable proof and everyone else was crazy. I would need to see some pretty hard evidence to be convinced this isn't some guy just trying to justify his expenses to his investors. An unidentifiable shoe and stories about giant sand crabs don't do it for me.

    I thought they missed the destination island and ran out of gas.

    Yup, I just went and wikipedia'd it and it was the Japanese. I remembered it was an Asian group that we were warring with at some point in time. :p

    I heard that she stopped to ask for directions and was captured by the Japanese.

    Never, ever, stop and ask for directions.

    Just go faster.

    I always figured she crashed because she was too busy putting her make-up on in the rearview mirror.

    Isn't she working in the same Burger King in Kalamazoo where Elvis works?
