The Synopsis for Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988) 1080p

Based on a true story. Shortly after World War II, Preston Tucker is a grandiose schemer with a new dream, to produce the best cars ever made. With the assistance of Abe Karatz and some impressive salesmanship on his own part, he obtains funding and begins to build his factory. The whole movie also has many parallels with director Coppola's own efforts to build a new movie studio of his own.

It's been a while since I saw this movie, and I was already acquaintedwith they story when I realized they'd made a movie about it. The movielives up to the reality.

No question, Preston Tucker was brilliant. When Uncle Sam requesteddesigns for combat vehicles, he submitted, and demonstrated, a designwhich significantly blew away all competitors. He was turned downbecause his design significantly outperformed what Uncle Sam asked for.Small-minded individuals, mired in the relatively wimpy requirements,wouldn't take the more advanced design. It boggled his mind that theywould turn down "steak with all the trimmings" in exchange for a "plainhamburger." I've been in the Military, so it doesn't surprise me.

When he wanted to make a point about safety, emphasizing the need forsafety glass and seatbelts (which were NOT standard equipment at thetime), he invited the appropriate people to lunch, served medium-rareroast beef, then showed pictures of people who'd died in car accidents.Lots of blood, lots of "raw meat." My driver's education teacher,trying to convince us to be safer drivers, did the same (minus thefancy lunch). Anyway, the similarities between what they saw on thescreen, and what they'd just eaten, caused many of them to be"re-acquainted" with their lunch. I sincerely doubt they ever forgotthe presentation, and his point was very well made.

I like this guy. He's whip-smart, practical, maybe a little toooptimistic.

I identify with him.

And they broke him.

Welcome to reality. Bites, doesn't it?

In the end, he knows he's beaten, but he still gets the last word in. Ihope I manage to do so well.

A beautiful film which captures the spirit of a man's struggle to makehis dream come true. Jeff Bridges is invincible in the role of PrestonTucker and effortlessly pulls the viewer inside the mind and spirit ofthis maverick entrepreneur who brought to the automotive industry seatbelts, fuel injection, pop-out windows and most of all a legend calledthe Tucker Torpedo.

Acting just oozes out of this fine actor and id consider it as his bestperformance ever. Excellent direction,screenplay and soundtrack. greatduologue's too. especially "can any one in this room look me in the eyeand say we cant do it" and on hearings a non-affirmative he replies"except you".

The courtroom speech is something which recharges your spirit and fillsyour body with passion. Very true as he puts it " fifty or fiftymillion...thats only machinery..its the idea that counts..the dream.."

This is one not to be missed.Reviewed byrhoughtonVote: 9/10

Thus is a superb movie. Firstly, the story line is just great. The true story of a man who fights against all the odds to realize his dream. Secondly, it's hard to imagine a better cast. They do an extraordinary job in bringing to life all the wonderful characters involved. Jeff Bridges is perfect as Tucker, and Landau is brilliant as the money man. But what really makes this work, is the way Tucker's undying spirit is brought out. He seems to lose the battle of making cars, but wins the ultimate battle of fulfilling himself and keeping his integrity. {"They're only machines, the idea's the important thing."] Over the years, I have collected many hundreds of movies, but this one has to be in the top ten. By the way, I just loved the music sound track. Very 40's.
