• Short Summary

    'Wrong Way Flyer' Douglas Corrigan visits Newark and is greeted by huge crowds.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CORRIGAN - NEWARK WELCOMES WRONG-WAY FLYER".

    Newark, New Jersey, United States of America.

    A large crowd waits at Newark airport to welcome 'Wrong Way Flyer' Douglas Corrigan as he lands his plane. Corrigan emerges to cheers from the crowd and is asked by a reporter what he thinks of the typical American girl. He goes on a bit, not making too much sense, about seeing so many of them in the last few days that he kind of sees them as a whole rather than individuals, and he doesn't really have a type, in fact, no type at all is better than a lot of them (?!). When asked if he thinks girls should look like movie stars he says "You can't hold it against them if they're good-looking!".

    Corrigan is led through the crowd then goes on to a luncheon at the Newark Athletic Club.
