Documentary narrated by David Letterman about the Warner Bros. Formula One movie 'Day of the Champion' featuring Steve McQueen; and the race to beat 'Grand Prix' to the big screen. Includes footage of the 1965 German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring and footage that was made for the movie shot 50 years ago; thought to have been lost forever until its recent accidental discovery.
Lost Nurburgring rushes pop up so thats great, downside it was presented by idiot know it all and failed F1 team manager Peter Windsor, who does F1 reporting in the USA but is regarded as a joke and a bit of a fraud over here.
His opening line on driver coach Jim Russell was 'well of course, Steve Mcqueen is an American, Jim Russell an American so naturally they got together".
I thought Jim was from Downham Market, Norfolk, England? I say that because I'm making a documentary with his SON.
Lots of nice graphics, some of which arrive unexpectedly, some good opportunity but too much incorrect B roll and a desperate rush at the end in an effort to drag out a conclusion.
