This is a short film made by George Lucas (of Star Wars fame) when he was a film student. It shows the test drive of a Lotus 23 race car from the driver's point of view. The vehicle has a top speed of 140 miles per hour. The driver is trying to qualify for a race, but there is no true story arc or narrative. Rather, the film is an intriguing example of Lucas' editing abilities, his cinematographic techniques, and his talent with sound effects. The entire film is less than two minutes long.
