Still one of the best racing films, 14 Jan. 2014
This was the first time I have seen the movie again since it was originally released, and I was not disappointed. The film offers an amazing insight into the time when Grand Prix racing was at its peak; a time when drivers were gladiators, yet friends. Given the personalities involved in racing today, it would be unthinkable (probably impossible) to make something like this again ... Jackie Stewart was one of the greatest drivers of all time; possibly only surpassed in supreme skill by the great Jim Clark and the legendary Fangio - his smooth and meticulous driving style serves as an antithesis to the no-holds-barred Ayrton Senna. Jackie has been a life-long hero for me and continues to be an excellent role-model. All of this is clearly depicted in the film, beautifully unsophisticated and human. Highly recommended for any F1 racing fan of the 60's and 70's era.
