Saw thje movie _The World's Fastest Indian_ the other night. For those of you who don't know, the film is about New Zealander Burt Munro (google the name for more) and his attempts at breaking a land speed record with a very modified 1920's vintage Indian Scout. Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt. The movie show some metal casting (Burt made his own parts out of whatever was handy) and other good gearhead stuff. There are a couple of moments in the movie which at first appear to be technobabble goofs, but are more likely Burt's somewhat sideways theories on how things work. There is some awesome footage of 1960's era land speed record cars running at Bonneville. The movie time-compresses Burt's record runs into one run, but it would hve been a nine-hour movie otherwise. There is a bit to much of Burt's philosophy on life, love, ect.. It's still a great movie, one Hollywood doesn't make very often (like _October Sky_) .
