THE GREEN HELMET 1961
U.K. film. Awesome racing footage from Le Mans, Sebring, Mille Miglia and Silverstone. Cool cars include: Tojeiro-Jaguar, Arnolt-Bristol, Ferrari 340 MM, Gordon GT, Birdcage Maserati, Bentley Mk VI, and others. Special guest appearance by real life Australian world champion Jack Brabham.

Greg Rafferty, is an English racing driver who has been around awhile and now his nerves and reputation are starting to suffer due to a series of bad crashes. Nevertheless, Greg signs on to race for Bartell, a rich American sponsor who wants to promote his tires.

Greg falls in love with the sponsor's daughter who begs him to stop racing. Greg's younger brother Taz, begins to pressure him to retire because he promised his mother that he would not drive until his older brother retires.

On the eve of the big race at Italy's Mille Miglia (a 1000 mile race) while testing a newly designed car, the drivers hit a patch of oil; and a driver is killed in the crash. Bill Travers, Ed Begley, Sid James, Nancy Walters, Ursula Jeans, Megs Jenkins, Jack Brabham, Sean Kelly. Tutte Lemkow, Gordon Tanner, Ferdy Mayne, Peter Collingwood. The Green Helmet!

Plus this bonus selection...

INGENUITY IN ACTION 1958
U.S. documentary. Very cool looking documentary about the Hot Rod Nationals of 1958. This film features lots of drag strip action! There's even a beatnik-lookin' hot-rodder! Beautiful color. This is probably one of the best films dealing with hot rods and drag racing.
