Storyline

The story of three racing drivers and three women, who constantly have to worry for the lives of their boyfriends. Jim Loomis and Mike Marsh drive for Pat Cassarian. Jim expects his fiancée Holly, but before she arrives, he dies in a race. Since she doesn't have the money to travel back, she stays. The young and very ambitious talent Ned Arp joins the team, and immediately starts wooing Pat's sister Julie. Third on the team is womanizer Dan McCall, who brings with him his current girlfriend Gabrielle from Paris. So the basic theme of this movie is, "Whom with whom?"

One of Hawks' finest pictures
27 January 2014 | by mraukui-244-10185See all my reviews

This film is said to be minor, but the opposite is true. It is absolutely masterly how Hawks tells his story and paints an archetypal portrait of the U.S.A. in the sixties. The racetracks with the cars circling in endless rounds symbolize the circle of life: the drivers who die in a car crash are replaced by new drivers who get also in accidents, the girlfriends of the drivers are left by them just to find a new driver to cling to. The drivers look alike, the girls are all alike, nobody is sticking out. Everything in this world is superficial and on the outside. The brands are everywhere in the movie: Ford, Pepsi, Holiday Inn. The dialogs get to the point fast, there is not a word too much. It is an extreme economy of storytelling. The camera by Milton Krasner is fantastic. Howard Hawks loved car races, he drove races himself, even constructed a car. He absolutely knew what he was talking about.
