Evel Knievel


1977       Sue Lyon

Evel Knievel (GEORGE HAMILTON) is at the Ontario Motor Speedway in California, preparing to perform the most spectacular stunt in his career: hurdling his motorcycle over 19 automobiles, a leap of 50 yards or more.

With him at Ontario are his wife, Linda (SUE LYON) and his major-domo, Pete (RON MASAK), who looks after his motorcycles, ramps and other equipment. A visitor is Doc Kincaid (BERT FREED), the surgeon who sews him together following his bone-shattering falls.

Prior to the actual jump, a series of flashbacks reveal the road that Evel has traveled, and some of the incidents in his life which have brought him to this moment at Ontario. He is shown as a boy growing up in Butte, Montana, as a teenager courting his wife in a most unorthodox manner, and as a young man involved in good-natured ruckuses with the law, in the person of the Butte sheriff (HAL BAYLOR).

Depicted are his encounters with Turquoise Smith (DUB TAYLOR), the promoter who gave him his first opportunity to

perform his stunts as a professional, and Charlie Kressen (ROD CAMERON), a veteran rodeo performer who died with his boots on.

Early and recent footage of Evel doing his incredible stunts is shown. Included are performances at the San Francisco Cow Palace, Houston Astrodome and Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, where he fell and broke his back.

Apparent is the fact that one thread runs constant throughout his life - an overwhelming desire to earn fame and fortune as the world's greatest motorcycle rider.

Finally, it is time for the Ontario performance. The stands are filled with people and the ramps are in place. Evel mounts his motorcycle, roars up and into the air, He soars over the autos, landing safely on the descending ramp, to the accompaniment of deafening applause.


George Hamilton, in the title role as Evel Knievel makes the following statement in the opening scenes of this breathtaking film from the Fanfare Corporation: "I've made jumps on Triumphs, Nortons, Huskies, Yamahas, Hondas and Montesas. . . and I missed jumps on Triumphs, Nortons, Huskies, Yamahas, Hondas and Montesas. Today, I'm riding an American bike. . . a high powered machine made for me by my good friends at Harley Davidson and ladies and gentlemen, I have not missed a jump since I've been riding this American bike. And I will not miss tonight, because it is part of the tradition and the heritage of this country that the words "impossible" and "fear" do not exist."
