Nellie Bly talked her way into a job on a newspaper, then went on to become "the best reporter in America." To expose abuse of the mentally ill, she had herself committed. But when she traveled around the world in just 72 days, beating Jules Verne's fictional escapade, she became a world celebrity. Her exploits earned her a reputation for fearlessness and, in the process, she changed the way news was gathered and reported.

What a woman

Comments about PBS American Experience: Around the World in 72 Days DVD:

I accidentally ran into Nellie Bly on the internet. After reading about her I read "Ten Days in a Madhouse" which she wrote (reported on) in 1887. She was excellent in exposing the horrors of a mental institution. I simply had to see something more about this girl. I found her documentary at the PBS shop. American Experience: Around the World in 72 Days did not disappoint. It not only covered the 72 days she traveled around the world breaking Phineas Foggs record of 80 days depicted in Jules Vernes "Around the World in 80 Days", but also covered much of her life as well. I really liked it.
