Hemmings Sunday Cinema – NASCAR Chargers, Matchboxes, One Two Three

Published in

While the vintage racing footage includes plenty of glimpses of all sorts of NASCAR notables from the aero war era, the focus on this two-part documentary is on the Chargers and on Dodge’s efforts to dominate stock car racing.

* How many times did British Pathe film the Matchbox factory? However many times, it’s always a delight to see the process, even as distilled and context-free as it is here.

* Finally, unless anybody can point to inseguimenti worth running here that we missed, let’s move on, shall we? Inexplicably, this car chase scene from the James Cagney Cold War comedy “One, Two, Three” is now dubbed in Russian. But like the inseguimenti, you don’t need to understand the dialogue to enjoy the chase.
