Movie Review

“Tucker: The Man and His Dream”

K&F Show Summary:

Movie Review: Big government and big business used big media to crush the little man who was just trying to build a better mousetrap of a car! That’s right, our beloved Big 3 all agreed on something – and that something was getting their corrupt state senator to smoosh the competition of Preston Tucker for daring to want to offer a high speed, disc brake, seat belt equipped new car that could really move. I’m betting Elon Musk watched this movie, took notes on what NOT to do, then launched a car company without getting killed. That’s all tongue in cheek of course (hopefully)!

This is a movie that will inspire you, intrigue you, and make you want to learn more about the Tucker Automobile….but definitely the man who gave it name.  It’ll also make you want to smoke, drink whiskey,  and wear suits with fedoras. I don’t know how historically accurate it was in truth but let’s assume that it was in the ballpark.  Sure made for a good movie!
