The Nose Takes A Ride With Baby Driver

Jul 7, 2017

Baby, played by Ansel Elgort, is a reluctant getaway driver in the latest Edgar Wright film, "Baby Driver." He's a good guy who's had some bad luck, like stealing the cash-filled car of a crime boss while coping with the death of his mom.

He can't run away with the girl of his dreams until he pays off his debt and the boss thinks he's the best driver around -- as long as he's listening to the music that drowns out his tinnitus.

Amelia Earhart’s plane disappeared from the sky during her 1937 attempt to be the first woman to fly around the world. She was never found. Enthusiasts have come up with lots of different theories with no definitive answers.

This week, Earhart researchers released a photograph they think proves that Earhart survived. It's a grainy snapshot of Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan alive on a dock in the Marshall Islands, which is hundreds of miles from her destination on Howland Island.
