Very Good Footage, Especially of the 1973 Indianapolis 500 - Not for the blood thirsty.
15 June 2004 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary that I saw back in the early 80's and I still enjoy it. It can be a difficult to find documentary and I'm glad I finally found it. It was worth the effort.

This film is not for those who are blood-thirsty and like to see graphic elements. Rather, it is targeted more towards an audience who want an education in history rather than blood and gore. It is old news footage shot by news crews and public service officials. People were not paid to make the remarks they did; they are on-the-spot interviews.

This movie covers more than enough detail without being overly explicit so its rarity is NOT disintegrated. It is suitable for young adults and not for those who like gore. I strongly recommend this film.
