Risky project. Easy because that story has been told and retold so many times in every medium the information is available. However for the same reason they have to come up with a novel way to present it, and be 100% accurate because so many people are knowledgeable on the subject.

In the past I've seen this story presented repeating mistakes they obviously copied from previous tries. Invariably, after an attempt to tell the story makes some press coverage, people come out of the woodwork to dispute certain details. Most of these people don't have the credentials to take their claims seriously, but a handful who were there on the team should know how things went down. Or course nobody in any organization from the main man to the janitor, knows everything.

I have to remind myself this was 50 years ago , and there's generations who see it as ancient history. So I guess being entertaining is primary and facts less important to them. nevermind

I really enjoyed it. The film is short and I feel like they could've gotten into the technical details of the cars more. The story they are telling is really good so any version should be captivating. Has it ever been done as a film? It also explains all those little Ford cars in my matchbox pile.

Oh, man.

Have you guys watched Wild Wild Country yet?

Do it. Don't read any spoilers. Just start it, and also be sure to do some jaw exercises first, because yours will be on the floor. I involuntarily shouted "WHAT?!" at the screen multiple times.
