Storyline

Beverly Blake, the 'Blonde Comet," and the daughter of a tire-manufacturer, gets behind the wheel of a race-car, and is soon tearing up the tracks and winning races in Italy, France and Germany (obviously prior to 1938 when those countries were no longer running international car races in Europe.) She comes back to race on American tracks. She meets Jim Flynn, another race-driver, and a rivalry is created, along with a romance. Beverly gives up her chance to win THE BIG RACE by letting Jim race her car and he wins. His win also means a triumph for the racing-car carburetor he has invented and also for the tires manufactured by her father. It may have been somewhat of a setback for Women's Liberation, though.

for race fans a must see film. For all others less so
10 August 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Young women becomes a race car driver in order to carry on the family tradition, and to promote the cars her father makes. Returning from Europe to the United States she gets involved romantically and professionally with an American racer. The romance and the off the track stuff is less compelling than the racing footage which seems to fill this movie from stem to stern. To me the off track stuff seemed to be an after thought to all of the racing footage there is (I kind of wish this had been a racing documentary). Most amazing to me is the way that footage with the actors has been integrated in with the race stuff. Its so well done that I was hard pressed to figure out what was real and what was made up. As a drama the film is just okay. Its not bad, its just that its choppy. The reason to see this film is the racing which is choice .Early on you see Monaco and Donnington Park in Europe and in the US races we see crashes and just good racing. There is also some footage of pit stops which are unlike what you see in either Grand Prix racing or NASCAR. A must see if you like racing, less imperative if you don't like it
