Funny story about first years of car racing
30 July 2001 | by (Prague, Czech republic) – See all my reviews

This movie from 1957 is dedicated to pioneers of car racing. Nice veteran cars from the early 20th century can be seen in this movie. English title: "Grandfather of cars". One of the first appearances of well-known director Milos Forman (as assisting director).
