In the early 1960s, Henry Ford II and Enzo Ferrari went to war on the battlefield of Le Mans. This epic battle saw drivers lose their lives, family dynasties nearly collapse and the development of a new race car that changed racing.
Personally I haven't raced in about 20 years, but this film got me to dig up some
old polaroid's of a McLaren MK8 I have that was for sale long ago.
It surprises me that Universal has put out this movie as it probably
has a limited audience, but it's so well done I hope it does.
Intermixed with current restored McLaren's the documentary is a mix of
past period videos, photos, and interviews, with good acting from the cast.
The dialog and comments from all the racing greats are terrific and there's
details that few may know about this man and those around him. I was at the Mosport race that is highlighted and it was well documented here. Really enjoyable with a tough ending.
