Either you'll say you get this all the time or you have no idea what I'm talking about...

The movie Grand Prix, mid sixties, w/James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, etc.? Not to mention cameos and driving work by Graham Hill, Phil Hill, Fangio, Wolfgang von Trips (I think), et al.

Excellent flick. And I mean EXCELLENT. Real period stuff...camera work in it's just amazing, especially for the time period it was shot in. Done by John Frankenheimer, same guy who did 'Ronin' and orchestrated the car chase in that...

Either way, BRM's star driver in it (and one of the main characters) is named Scott Stoddard - a model on Jackie Stewart, down to the helmet...

Just thought I'd toss in my two cents.
