    As for the movie, while it was far from perfect (no racing movie ever has been or ever will be), I'd say that it was the best racing movie made since "Rush" or perhaps even "Le Mans". I'm still not sold on Matt Damon playing Carroll Shelby - I didn't see any physical resemblance - but Christian Bale was perfect as Ken Miles. Leo Beebe was depicted - apparently incorrectly - as an arrogant ass, but I think that most of the other characterizations were reasonable. What Enzo Ferrari said (indirectly) to Henry Ford II was priceless! It was neat seeing Alex Gurney playing his dad, admittedly in a cameo role, and I noted that Ronnie Bucknum's son was one of the stunt drivers. If you haven't seen the movie yet, do so! I believe it's also available in IMAX. And be forewarned - it's 2-1/2 hours long.

    Great movie and a reasonable portrayal of most of the facts. We played a small part in the soundtrack in the film as our shop tuned the car used for the 330P soundtrack heard in the race. Miles was perfectly cast.
