The Evel Knievel Wide World Of Sport Special is a documentary style film covering the life and times of one of America’s greatest stuntmen.
Evel is still listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the survivor of “most bones broken in a lifetime” – he suffered 433 documented fractures over the course of his professional life. Somewhat amazingly, he lived to the age of 69 and died of a non-stunt related disease.
Evel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999 and is remembered today as one of the most iconic American characters of the ’60s and ’70s. If you’d like to read more about him, you can click here to visit his Motorcycle Hall of Fame entry.
