... Or better titled, Ford vs. Ford. A terrific film. There haven't been many "real" Hollywood movies made recently, films made for adult Americans. I've lived on the edge of the professional racing world my whole life, knew a lot of guys like the ones in this film as my elder mentors and heroes. My uncle drove for Shelby and raced the Hollywood Sport Cars' Tiger. As a child I went to the track with him and his curmudgeonly mechanic, Doane Spencer (Google "Doane Spencer Roadster"), and as an adult I got to spend a good deal of time hanging out with Dick Guldstrand (who raced and built most of the great 1960s Corvettes). It was wonderful to see this era and these characters brought back to life. The film is exciting, heart warming and, a time or two, brought a tear to my jaded eyes. Not only at the moments that you'd expect to be built in but also at the point when Henry Ford II viscerally confronts the car he has paid for so dearly. The performances are great, the cars are beautiful and appropriately deadly, and unlike a lot of racing movies, it's really quite a good film. If Rush, another good racing film, marks the end of the "romantic era" of car racing, now we just need a few about the early days of the Mille Miglia, or The Brickyard.
