This 1971 feature film tells the story of infamous motorcycle daredevil, Evel Knievel. It’s equal parts comedy and biography with plenty of stunts thrown in for good measure, it’s 1:28:00 long and it’s well worth watching if you’re the kind of person who used to jump bicycles over rickety wooden ramps as a child.
Evel Knievel is a step beyond iconic.
This 1971 interview on The Dick Cavett Show features a relaxed, wise-cracking Evel Knievel. The interview has been split into 3 parts and, rather brilliantly, still has all the original early-70s television advertisements in place.
