Chicagoland MG Club: CAN-AM the Speed Odyssey
C’etait un Rendezvous - DVD
A film by Claude Lelouch
DVD, 9 minutes, color, 1973

Just a nice Sunday morning drive through the streets of Paris. Except that in this case it’s an alleged Ferrari 275 GTB driven wide open. Did I say wide open? Well, he did slow down to go up on the sidewalk to avoid some traffic. Red lights be damned, full speed ahead. On the first public showing Lelouch was supposedly arrested. In his defense he claimed that he had taken all possible precautions. This included convincing a Formula One driver to helm the car. He refused to name him. No computer graphics or special effects, just a big right foot. Jeremy Clarkson says that “it makes Bullitt look like a cartoon.” And you never see the car. If watching this movie doesn’t get your pulse rate up its time to trade in your MG for a Prius or mini-van. This DVD was shown at the November club meeting and is now part of our library. It is probably better seen on a large screen TV in a darkened room. Turn the sound way up.
