Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Evening. I’m sitting in a small, late 30s theater with about 75 near buddies and family of the late Jessi Combs, preparing to observe a personal premier screening of the approaching Documentary movie about her everyday living, The Speediest Lady on Earth. The film truthfully reveals Jessi’s private and community life, and her quest to crack the all-out land velocity document for a woman, initially set in 1976 by famous stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed more than 7 several years, The Quickest Woman on Earth chronicles the amazing existence of expert racer and Television personality Jessi Combs. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with pleasure and tragedy, this element documentary throws viewers instantly into the cockpit for Jessi’s extraordinary endeavor – and the value that she eventually compensated for good results.”
All I can say is that this film is nicely-built, engaging and entertaining, yet utterly intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to looking at youthful households board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna conclude. The filmmakers had been shut good friends who documented every single step of Jessi’s inspirational existence and the movie also answered numerous burning issues that I had about the accident, and particulars of what accurately happened on her last run for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the possibility, this movie is quite considerably value the watch.
Rest in Peace and God Speed, Jessi.
