ON FILM: Le Mans

For auto racing enthusiasts few movies capture the speed and danger of the sport better than the 1971 film Le Mans. The film was a long gestating obsession for its star Steve McQueen and a new book chronicles the making of what would become a notorious box office flop.

Don Nunley, co-author of the book Steve McQueen: Le Mans in the Rearview Mirror, discusses behind the scene moments from the set of the film where he was the property master.
