The Greatest and the Greatest Underdog

In this episode, Chris and Marty talk about the movies featuring the Greatest and possibly the Greatest Underdog. Elsewhere, they discuss the a proper barn find and revisit one of the worst racing films ever.

In the last episode we discussed a movie list from Mark Kermode but we mixed up our 'Crash'es. As an act of penance, please go and check out the Secrets of Cinema series on iPlayer.

There is a great, if short, story of the 'Thorndyke Special' from The Love Bug as actually discovered in a barn!

Marshall Pruett has done a deep, deep dive into Driven. Stunningly, worrying detailed.

In this episode Marty has gone in depth with A Life of Speed: The Juan Manuel Fangio Story, while Chris watched Uppity: The Willy T. Ribbs Story

For our online picks, Chris got in first choosing Ratarossa's Abandoned Ferrari F40 Treasure Hunt, while also recommending Jonny Smith's CarPervert channel, congrats on 100k subscribers!

Marty chose Hard Cell episode 1 which is currently free to watch, though not on YouTube. What is on YouTube though is the VHS Rallies channel for some nostalgic fun.
