Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night. I’m sitting in a compact, late 30s theater with about 75 near buddies and relatives of the late Jessi Combs, preparing to look at a non-public premier screening of the approaching Documentary film about her life, The Speediest Lady on Earth. The movie honestly reveals Jessi’s own and public existence, and her quest to split the all-out land pace record for a female, in the beginning established in 1976 by legendary stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed around 7 several years, The Swiftest Woman on Earth chronicles the extraordinary life of specialist racer and Television set identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly mixing inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this function documentary throws viewers straight into the cockpit for Jessi’s exceptional endeavor – and the value that she ultimately paid for achievements.”
All I can say is that this movie is well-produced, partaking and entertaining, however completely gut-wrenching to watch… akin to seeing younger families board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna end. The filmmakers were being close good friends who documented every move of Jessi’s inspirational life and the film also answered lots of burning thoughts that I experienced about the incident, and information of what particularly transpired on her last run for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the possibility, this film is quite significantly well worth the watch.
Relaxation in Peace and God Velocity, Jessi.
The movie premiers on HBO Max on Oct 20th.
