    more from this reviewer

    Great Movie,this as well as Grand Prix were Actual Blockbusters!

    A Must for Steve McQueen fan!Puts you in the drivers seat.Actual locations used in the filming.Was there in the 60's and walked the actual cobble-stone street made of bricks.
    There were no actual speed limits on the Autobon.
    Speed was KM not MPH.The signs and roadways ways are totaly different.

    Le McQueen

    Le Mans is an all McQueen movie.Made after Grand Prix, the camera angles are not as well filmed as Frankenheimer's on-board cameras, but Lee Katzin's direction, after McQueen's friend John Sturges left over a plot direction dispute, shows off McQueen's racing skills to the max. Filmed in 1970 on the track..there is plenty of wrecks and racing, much as a docu-drama. The high point of Le Mans is the cinematography..the low is the script..or lack of one, thus no emotion or passion for the sport is felt in any way. What could have been a great racing film, was panned by critics, Steve's Solar Productions went bankrupt, his marriage was disolved...and his 'dream' movie about racing lay dead on the track.

    Great Movie, love the period

    I've been once to Le Mans (1976) and the ambiance is here to feel. I'll have a copy of this movie but once it's been on DVD i'll buy it at once. So, bring this movie on DVD like the other movies from Steve McQueen. Or if someone has it put on DVD, same as the movie from Chris Rea ''La Passione'' let me know. '''' a very passionate fan of autosport ''''. Same as the advertising in the seventies by ''Martini'' there is a ad. where there was racing on Le Mans. But where is that ad. If anyone has it or know where it is let me know.
