The result is a film consistent narratively, confident stylistically and abounce with the quaint quality that animated both the hero and his times, something we used to call pep.

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.

The cinematic sleight-of-hand parallels the bombast of its hero, but you never get a glimpse of either visionary.
This movie I kick myself for having missed when it came out 20 years ago, and it was only last week on HBO that I actually got the Tucker experience with both barrels. The two main ideas for me of this all-American Horatio Alger "rags-to-riches" story are:
1) Innovation in conflict with the stale old dead way of doing things (out of collective ignorance and blind obedience to authority)?call it the Pleasantville barrier?and
2) Man against the state, particularly the US state and its insidious methods of coercion working in harmony with cartel business interests?call it the Kleptocon barrier.
Without question, the ebullient, imaginative, brilliant, individualistic, hard working Preston Thomas Tucker is more deserving of the quintessential "American Hero" designation than anyone Ayn Rand ever imagined?from the iconoclastic/artistic (humorless) Howard Roark to the ethereal/scientific (humorless) John Galt.?Or anyone else ever imagined for that matter. Preston Tucker had it all: a joie de vivre that made everyone around him want to sing for joy, a similarly eccentric loving family with hearts as big as Texas, the imagination of a precocious child, and the hard driving intelligence of a man who wills himself to be the best.
