What's the Best GT40 DVD?

Is there any good or great DVD's on GT40's? Something that shows rare footage of the development of the cars and than later, with the Gulf teams?

I have one DVD sponsored by Gulf and Forodo of the LeMans race. It show small bits of the race with the GT40 and Porsche 917. What else is out there that's WORTH watching?

Re: What's the Best GT40 DVD?

I have three (all worth watching):

Ford GT40 the story - from 1963 to the new GT supercar

La Ronde Infernale Le Mans 1969

The Gulf/Wyer GT40s & 917s in action [perhaps the DVD you have]
- Never start something you can't stop [Le Mans 1968]
- A year to remember [1970 season for the Gulf Porsche 917s]

YES, this is the one I've seen on the screen while I was on teen-age! And this is the reason why I'm still around in this forum?

GT40s in Film, and "Un homme Et Une Femme"

Just found this database which might be of interest.

IMCDb.org: Ford GT 40 in movies and TV series


It lists 30+ GT40 appearances, although it fails to distinguish accurately between replicas and originals.

And speaking of film, does anyone one know which serial number car was used in "Un Homme et Une Femme" ("A Man and a Woman")? For reference see YouTube - Un homme Et Une Femme 1966)

Re: What's the Best GT40 DVD?

Hmmm. May have answered my own question. Someone on the net says

"We can see here Ford GT 40 on the Montlhéry Circuit, France. From the movie "un home une femme" by Claude Lelouch. The GT 40 we can see here really took part on the 1965 24h Du Mans race under the colors of Ford France. Main actor (pilot here) Jean-louis Trintignant was nephew of Maurice Trintignant who was real pilot of the Ford France GT 40 at this time. Henri Chemin director of Ford France can be seen here (man with bonnet) playing his own character."

Cool movie, great music - and I loved that white TdF Mustang with its silver steel wheels.

There's one car shown there that certainly isn't a replica or an original GT40, the one shown for the film The Secret Service, 1969. Though this may just be someone's bad choice of picture to show for the film.

I can think of a film that is missing, though the (replica) GT40 that is in it is only present for a few seconds before being machine gunned - Die Another Day.

Nice list though.

On the DVD of "A Man and a Woman" is a documentary about the making of the movie that has some additional footage of the Ford of France Mk I that is in some ways more interesting than what was used in the movie itself.
