The case when entertaining cinema borders on high art.
Much of what is shown to us in films about cars is not true. Such is the cinema, sometimes conventions and simplifications are simply necessary there. But there are also reverse examples – when everything is done “by garlic”.
Especially a lot of this in the films of previous years. Released in 1974, The Man with the Golden Gun, starring Roger Moore as 007, was full of stunts, supporting and reinforcing the canon that was then forming around Bond.
In one of the scenes of the film, Bond needs to get to the opposite bank of the river, and in the shortest possible time. Seeing a dilapidated bridge, the hero launches his AMC Hornet straight at it…
Beauty here is literally in every detail: skilfully disguised as the ruins of a bridge, a springboard of a certain profile, chosen angles, sound, replicas of heroes, forcing suspense … And of course, the trick itself is a jump with a twist around the longitudinal axis by 360 °. No editing, just the skill of a stuntman.
Since then, many have tried (some successfully) to repeat such a “barrel”, but then it looked like a perfect fantasy. By the way, the trick was filmed on the first take!
But many of the moments of cinema can never be performed in reality. You can watch “Behind the wheel” on RuTube.
