Frank Abagnale, Jr. worked as a doctor, a lawyer and a co-pilot for a major airline—all before his 18th birthday. A master of deception, he could assume nearly any identity. Frank was also a brilliant forger, and by age 17, became the most successful check forger in U.S. history. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty has made it his primary mission to capture Frank and bring him to justice, but Frank is always one step ahead.
Trivia: In case anyone was wondering, Frank was telling the truth when he said he passed the Bar Exam by studying. He studied for three weeks and took it. He did, however, fail the first two times. But since you were allowed to take it as many times as possible, he just used process of elimination till he passed, and third time was a charm.
Question: After Frank is essentially forced to abandon Brenda in order to avoid not getting caught at the airport he resumes his farce as a pilot and recruits young women as his accompanying stewardesses. Roughly how long does this thing with the stewardesses possibly last? Did he really risk to include them in his "trip" around the world to various countries to continue his fraud because obviously he abandoned them at some point and ended up in France where he was caught.
