The higher he rises, the farther has to fall. Texan oil fortune heir Howard Hughes refuses to wisely invest and enjoy his millions, preferring to riskily spend on his passions: airplanes and Hollywood, so in the s he produces an unprecedented air combat blockbuster Hell Angels which he keeps improving to staff's despair, with Katherine Hepburn as bonus lover.
His germophobia gets utterly out of hand and test-piloting himself nearly breaks every bone is his body, but the worst challenge comes from senator Ralph Owen Brewster, who uses the FBI to threaten Hughes with ruin and public exposure as 'war profiteer' unless he accepts personal friend Juan Trippe's company PanAm being given a virtual monopoly on international flights.
Hughes was so obsessed with perfection in the aerial sequences that he waits forever for perfect conditions, right down to cloud formations.
This movie ends in , when Hughes was still a dashing young man and romancing actresses like Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn. Phenomenal public success contrasts with private behaviors close to madness: Howard Hughes from the late s to the late s, from " Hell's Angels " spending a fortune on details through the only flight of the Hercules, a huge, money-losing transport plane.
Along the way, the public Hughes sees the big picture, in movies and in aviation, building TWA and leading it through a fight with Pan Am and the U.
In private, phobias and compulsions threaten him with self-imposed solitary confinement. How long can his imagination, drive, and the sympathies of Katharine Hepburn , Ava Gardner , and the men who work for him stave off these internal disorders?
Focusing on his early years from the production of Hell's Angels , to the test flight of the Spruce Goose, when he was forty-two , this is the story of how young Howard Hughes transformed a small fortune into a massive one.
Hughes also had many women in his life including a long relationship with Katharine Hepburn. From an early age, however, Hughes was also germophobic and would have severe bouts of mental illness.
Written by garykmcd. Before Howard Hughes was a recluse so reclusive as to out-Salinger J. Salinger, he was a big time stud, who made big movies, flew fast planes, and courted gorgeous ladies; so say Martin Scorsese and John Logan, architects of this latest Hollywood biopic.
In later years, Hughes's mental problems would become legendary; at this stage in the game, he suffers only from pronounced germ phobia and mild obsessive-compulsive disorder.
This is all expertly depicted by Scorsese, Logan, and DiCaprio. Stealing all her scenes is Cate Blanchett, who should start making room on her mantle for her Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
It couldn't have been easy to play an iconic movie star like Katharine Hepburn, but Blanchett aces it.
Both excel, with Alda coming off as both slimy and goofy at the same time. Alec Baldwin, like Cate Blanchett, steals every scene he has, playing Trippe as a delightfully suave villain.
In his final scene he delivers a wonderful monologue on the future of Hughes's Trans-World Airline, and caps it off with the most hysterical use of the F word in many years.
Also appearing: the dependable John C. Reilly as Hughes's business manager Noah Dietrich; Jude Law, who apparently can't go two weeks without seeing himself in a different movie, as movie legend Errol Flynn; Brent Spiner yay!

He co-wrote the script with Bo Goldman after a proposed collaboration with Paul Schrader fell through. Goldman wrote his own script, Melvin and Howard , which depicted Hughes' possible relationship with Melvin Dummar.
Beatty's thoughts regularly returned to the project over the years,  and in he approached Steven Spielberg to direct Goldman's script.

Hughes in turnaround. The film was shelved when Scorsese was on board to direct The Aviator. Nolan wrote the script and the script follows the darker and final years of Hughes's life.
Nolan, once again, shelved the project when Warren Beatty was developing his long-awaited Hughes film.
It was reported that Nolan's Hughes film was to star Jim Carrey as the reclusive, elderly billionaire. New Line Cinema picked it up in turnaround almost immediately, with Mann planning to direct after finishing Ali.
Scorsese later said that he "grossly misjudged the budget". Howard Hughes suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder OCD , most notably an obsession with germs and cleanliness.
Scorsese and DiCaprio worked closely with Dr. Jeffrey M. Instead of receiving proper treatment, Hughes was forced to hide his stigmatized compulsions; his disorder began to conflict with everyday functioning.
In particular, he focused on the way some individuals would compulsively and repeatedly wash their hands, later inspiring the scene in which his hand starts to bleed as he scrubs it in the bathroom.
The character arc of Howard Hughes was a drastic one: from the height of his career to the appearance of his compulsions, and eventually, to him sitting naked in a screening room, refusing to leave, and later repeating the phrase "the way of the future.
In an article for the American Cinematographer , John Pavlus wrote: "The film boasts an ambitious fusion of period lighting techniques, extensive effects sequences and a digital re-creation of two extinct cinema color processes: two-color and three-strip Technicolor.
This was done, according to Scorsese, to emulate the look of early bipack color films, in particular the Multicolor process, which Hughes himself owned, emulating the available technology of the era.
Similarly, many of the scenes depicting events occurring after are treated to emulate the saturated appearance of three-strip Technicolor.
Other scenes were stock footage colorized and incorporated into the film. The color effects were created by Legend Films. Scale models were used to duplicate many of the flying scenes in the film.
When Martin Scorsese began planning his aviation epic, a decision was made to film flying sequences with scale models rather than CGI special effects.
The critical reaction to the CGI models in Pearl Harbor had been a crucial factor in Scorsese's decision to use full-scale static and scale models in this case.
The building and filming of the flying models proved both cost-effective and timely. The primary scale models were the Spruce Goose and the XF; both miniatures were designed and fabricated over a period of several months by New Deal Studios.
Each was built as a motion control miniature used for "beauty shots" of the model taking off and in flight as well as in dry dock and under construction at the miniature Hughes Hangar built as well by New Deal Studios.
These 3D models of the Spruce Goose as well as the XF were then used for patterns and construction drawings for the model makers.
In addition to the aircraft, the homes that the XF crashes into were fabricated at scale to match the scale XF The model was rigged to be crashed and break up several times for different shots.
Additional castings of the Spruce Goose flying boat and XF models were provided for new radio controlled flying versions assembled by the team of model builders from Aero Telemetry.
The models were shot on location at Long Beach and other California sites from helicopter or raft platforms. Miramax also held the rights to the US television distribution, while Warner Bros.
Initial Entertainment Group released the film in the remaining territories around the world. The film was released in DVD in a two-disc-set in widescreen and full screen versions on May 24, The site's critical consensus reads: "With a rich sense of period detail, The Aviator succeeds thanks to typically assured direction from Martin Scorsese and a strong performance from Leonardo DiCaprio, who charts Howard Hughes' descent from eccentric billionaire to reclusive madman.
Roger Ebert of Chicago Sun-Times gave the film four stars out of four and described the film and its subject, Howard Hughes, in these terms: "What a sad man.
What brief glory. What an enthralling film There's a match here between Scorsese and his subject, perhaps because the director's own life journey allows him to see Howard Hughes with insight, sympathy — and, up to a point, with admiration.
This is one of the year's best films. Of the film, he said it is "a gorgeous tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood" even though it "tips the balance of spectacle versus substance in favour of the former.
Courtwright in The Journal of American History characterized The Aviator as a technically brilliant and emotionally disturbing film. According to him, the main achievement for Scorsese is that he managed to restore the name of Howard Hughes as a pioneer aviator.
These included aircraft that Hughes had built, airliners that his airline TWA used, and other aircraft.
