ABOUT THE MOVIE

Almost in breadth and depth of a documentary, this movie depicts an auto race during the 70s on the world's hardest endurance course: Le Mans in France. The race goes over 24 hours on 14.5 kilometers of cordoned country road. Every few hours the two drivers per car alternate - but it's still a challenge for concentration and material.

In the focus is the duel between the German Stahler in Ferrari 512LM and the American Delaney (Steve McQueen) in Gulf Team Porsche 917. Delaney is under extraordinary pressure, because the year before he caused a severe accident, in which his friend Lisa's husband was killed.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Movie: LE MANS

Country: USA

Year: 1970

Running time: 109 minutes

Release date: October 29, 1971

Directed by: Lee H. Katzin  

Music by: Michel Legrand

Cinematography: Robert B. Hauser, René Guissart jr.

The conclusion of the race in the movie is similar to races of the period. The 1969 Le Mans race was decided by a few hundred feet, the closest unstaged finish in race history. In the 1970 Sebring 12-hour race, McQueen himself and partner Peter Revson were relegated to second place after Mario Andretti took over the car of Vacarella/Giunti.
