I've seen the movie three times now (It's the only movie I've ever seen in theaters three times) and it's still excellent. I've been telling everyone I know to see it.

Historical inaccuracies aside (There's only a couple that really bug me, TBH), they just made a really, really good film. In an age of stale superhero films and preachy political lambasting, truly good films are all too rare. The fact that it's a racing movie, about Le Mans, is just the icing on the cake.

I have to admit, I actually enjoy the Road Atlanta cameos. It's kinda fun to recognize the place from my trip to PLM in 2013.

I've seen it once, thought it was really good and I plan to go back to check it out again - I'd tweaked my back and wasn't comfortable so without that distraction, reckon it'll be even better 2nd time round. Agree with you that it's a really good movie & the fact that it's about racing (& racing people) is icing on the cake.

I hadnt realised that Ken Mills was involved in the development of the Sunbeam Tiger until googling something completely different yesterday.

Mills, Milne, Miles..... whatever.... Just call him Ken!

Bit OT but there’s a good summary in this link of Shelby and Ken’s involvement in the Sunbeam Tiger development....

Reviewed in Autosport this week is a Netflix documentary, ‘Shelby American’, which sounds worth a watch if you have Netflix..... Covers the early years from chicken farmer to Le Mans winner and beyond.
