Movie Info

Steve McQueen is ideally cast as a champion race car driver, participating in the famed 24-hour race headquartered in Le Mans, France. Though dedicated to Going for the Gold, McQueen finds time to romance widowed Elga Andersen. The dramatic angle to this plot wrinkle is that McQueen may well have been responsible for the death of Andersen's husband during a previous car pile-up. Director John Sturges, who'd previously helmed Steve McQueen's legendary motorcycle chase scenes in The Great Escape,

...one of the best pure racing movies ever made. But if you don't like automobile racing, you might not find much to enjoy.

It's better perhaps to view it as a visual poem about cars in motion.

Audience Reviews for Le Mans

Wow how long as it taking me to watch this movie,hmm to long.For anyone who loves motorsports will enjoy this classic mockumantary about the worlds most famous race.Yes its dated but is a throw back to the days when racing was suicide with on limts.I've been to le mans a few times now and yes the race circuit as been updated. But its was a thrill to see and near feel what its was like back in 1970.If you are looking for a story then forget it, there pretty much nothing here to offer,its about the race and the race only its even takes nearly forty mintues before anyone says eventhing!This is not the shit feast that stallone made with Driven a few years ago.This as got passion and and soul and very realist as they come.The only other movie to come close is Grand Prix which again is a classic movie.Steve McQueen has never looked so cool.
