Trivia

Pete Brock was a talented artist and designer and sometime race driver. He borrowed this 1100cc G Modified Lotus 23 for the shoot, apparently from a Navy Commander by the name of Gustafson. Brock explains the rather low 6000 rpm red line as being set so as not to strain the loaned engine. See more »

Good Short from Lucas
25 May 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

1:42.08 (1966)

*** (out of 4)

This seven-minute short is one that was done by George Lucas for his Senior Project while at USC. From what I've read, Peter Brock actually borrowed a car so that Lucas could film it doing laps at a race track. The title refers to the amount of time it took to complete a lap. For the most part this here is a pretty entertaining film thanks in large part to the way it was filmed and for the sound. The various sounds captured as the car flies around the track was put to good use and it certainly makes you feel as if you're right there inside the car. There were some nice shots including one where the camera was placed at the front of the car giving you a terrific view. There's certainly nothing here that would lead you to believe Lucas would become somewhat of an icon but it's certainly worth watching.
