One of Francis Ford Coppola’s most overlooked gems comes delivered to our showroom in a nifty 4K restoration.

Jeff Bridges stars as real-life inventor Preston Tucker, who attempted to market “the car of the future” during the postwar boom of the late 1940s, only to be undone by the government and the auto industry.

Coppola had pursued this subject for many years, even imagining it as a musical. The musical didn’t happen, but the film does maintain an exuberance and style that sweeps you along. Add to that the delicious visuals of cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, and an amazing cast, including Martin Landau, Joan Allen, Lloyd Bridges, Frederic Forrest and Dean Stockwell. (US 1988) 110 min.
