Synopsis

Documentary about Nellie Bly, one of the first female newspaper reporters, who worked for the "New York World" at the end of the 19th century and was a practitioner of "stunt journalism." Focuses on two of her exploits: her inmate's-eye view of an asylum in New York City and her journey around the world in 72 days, beating Jules Verne's fictional escapade and thereby becoming a world celebrity.
