Factual error: Christian Bale is eating a bag of potato chips. That bag is foil-lined or made of some type of polymer blend. Potato chips were packaged in a wax-paper/plastic bag in the mid-sixties. The inside of the bag would have been whitish, not silver.
I rented this movie from RedBox.
i was actually pretty psyched for this film when I saw the previews. I just do wish I had the opportunity to see it on the big screen. I'm sure it would have been quit the spectacle there.
Based on a true story, this is about the creation of the Ford GT40 and why, with the racing and rivalry between Ford and Ferrari during this time frame. A fund thrill ride of a grand race with compelling acting and story.
Mistake Status: Wasn't looking for any really.
Henry Ford II: This isn't the first time Ford Motors' gone to war. We know how to do more than push papers. Go ahead, Carroll. Go to war.
Carroll Shelby: Thank you, sir.
Question: During La Mans, it shows Shelby taking a stopwatch from Ferrari's pit and dropping a nut on the floor. Is there any indication Shelby ever cheated during a race like this (whether at Le Mans or somewhere else)? Like, was he ever caught or accused of cheating? I get there's a lot of artistic licensing taking place in this film, so I understand if it was made up, just curious if it was based on anything from Shelby's life.
