Fair wee movie-excellent lead man!
20 February 2006 | by klingonandy-1See all my reviews

Fair wee movie,in response to other viewers comments- Bluebird K7-(the real one) was many different shades of blue during it's life and quite a few shapes as well!starting off in 1955 as a "smooth" design and ending up due to various upgrades and rebuilds with the Tailfin from a Folland Gnat jet fighter grafted on the rear and vastly different cockpit and front end- basically a work in progress.The replica K7 used in the movie is now housed in a museum in the Lake district.As for the movie-I agree that for some strange reason it was never released in the Uk and the only copies available are normally poor third generation copies on auction sites- pity,after all it's about one of the last British Heroes-Donald Campbell.All in all the movie is a fair account of Campbells life and the lead up to the events on 4th January.Perhaps a sequel may be made when the real K7 is finished being restored-if we get the funding!incidentially the replica used in the movie is a lot smaller than the real k7 and is displayed at a museum in Coniston.
