Charles Lindbergh's May 1927 solo flight from New York to Paris caught the world's attention and made him an instant celebrity. Conducted on the cusp of the Great Depression and the rise of underworld crime, the flight was a shining moment for a country that was quickly heading into darkness. When the pilot's baby was kidnapped in 1932, many Americans questioned how something so heinous could happy to their hero. Surely, if it could happen to Lindy, it could also happen to them.
