The World's Fastest Indian

Now this is my kind of movie ... quirky, hopeful, and very well written, shot, acted and directed. Anthony Hopkins plays Burt Munro, this wild old dude from New Zealand who modified his 1920 Indian motorcycle and set off for the Bonneville Salt Flats to set a land speed record with it! It is a movie that makes you want to go out and follow your dream(s).

He succeeded in setting a new land speed record at Bonneville in 1963. He later set other records there, including one in 1967 that STILL STANDS!
