MPAA Rating:

Beryl Markham: Shadow on the Sun was a two-part TV movie originally telecast in May of 1988. Stefanie Powers is right in her element as the real-life Beryl Markham, an Englishwoman living in Kenya with her family. Bucking the male-dominated Kenyan social structure, Beryl becomes the first woman in Africa to train horses on a professional level. And in 1936, she thrills the world by being the first aviatrix to fly from England to the US across the Atlantic. With four hours to fill, the film is obligated to trace Beryl’s love life, which was not always as rewarding as her public accomplishments. Inasmuch as Beryl was a contemporary of author Karen Blixen–better known as Isaak Dinesen–Beryl Markham: Shadow on the Sun contrives to include several characters introduced in Out of Africa.
