It’s Top Gun, but with race cars! Robert Duvall plays the hardened mentor, egging Tom Cruise on against a backdrop of revving engines and the sounds of ‘Gimme Some Lovin’ by the Spencer Davis Group. He urges Cruise to round things off by hitting the pace car, “because you’ve hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect.” This film also happens to be the set where Cruise met his future spouse, Nicole Kidman.
