This is wonderful!
I’ve never heard Fon’s voice before!!
For anyone interested in the US, it's showing on Starz. Caught it the other day and it was truly excellent, footage and audio alike. Worth buying a hard copy in high definition if you can find it.
Reviving this thread.
Saw this on cable TV the other night........ just outstanding. I must have been under a rock when it came out as I had no idea of the existence of such a fine film. With all the chat about Ford v Ferrari, which the wife and I saw yesterday and enjoyed very much, a mention of "Race to Immortality" is well deserved on our forum.
And to those that contributed: well done!
Bought it at Best Buy. Cheap...
Having just read this thread in its entirety, with great interest I must add...Mr Nye: whist having never met, I must say that our shared generational perspectives offer some wildly differing views and perspectives-to both the tragic happenings at LeMans that year, as well as the social/period context-the two streams are about these topics and, how and where, to view this biopic piece(very interesting as a matter of factual point)...
I'm actually going to consider my response carefully, as I have largely limited my content to things technical-based on a lifetime of participation...
But having been born so close to the end of the war, and having a grandfather who served so highly in all of the Roosevelt administrations, and served in a higher capacity, in both of the Truman administrations, I have a keen viewpoint on a variety of the topics on which you have touched upon...
Factually: unless you are of a certain age, and have lived through certain eras, it is simply not possible for the younger/successive generations to possess a proper historical perspective(s) for some of the topics to which you have referenced-like it or not; the caste system of these bygone years WAS alive and well both in the US, as well as the UK. ADDITIONALLY, without the proper appreciation/context, you simply cannot appreciate some of the subtler issues/societal fabric undertones that you have articulated.
I'll post after the holidays....
Well spoken, I must say Mr. Nye...
