    Thumbs up Movie Night: The 24 Hour War - Recommended!

    Recommended - The 24 Hour War. It's an excellent documentary.

    The film is about the incredible Le Mans rivalry with Ford and Ferrari. What makes this film special is the legendary people appearing in it and the heart that went into crafting this documentary. While this story has been told many times, the filmmakers did a tremendous service interviewing the people they did and recording it for all of time.

    This is the third movie by Adam Carolla's (and team) production studio. They also did the Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman. I enjoyed that film as well.

    It's currently available on Amazon Prime (and if that option isn't available it's well worth the purchase price): https://www.amazon.com/24-Hour-War-A.../dp/B01N0IOJT4

    My congrats + thanks to the filmmakers and all that were involved.

    Enjoy!

    I liked it. Learned a lot about my favorite era of racing. Also features Preston Lerner who is a So Cal spec Miata racer and automotive journalist and cool guy.

    The man and le mans is a doc on steve mcqueens making of the doc lemans is pretty good. Then there is a good piece on motoGP called hitting the apex. It goes from the height of valantino rossi to the rise of marc marquez and the change in riding style to the elbow draggers.

    I agree. The Man and Le Mans is wonderfully shot... can't get enough of those cars and that circuit. Worth watching for anyone who enjoyed the '71 film, and a fascinating backstory. It's also on Amazon Prime currently.

    Le Mans (the '71 film) is an excellent cinematic documentary. And even if it's entirely devoid of any story, it's among some my favorite motorsport movies. Who would have thought all the real drama was in the making of it?
