Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Night time. I’m sitting in a small, late 30s theater with about 75 near good friends and spouse and children of the late Jessi Combs, making ready to observe a personal leading screening of the forthcoming Documentary film about her existence, The Swiftest Lady on Earth. The movie truthfully reveals Jessi’s personal and community life, and her quest to crack the all-out land speed document for a girl, initially established in 1976 by famous stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed more than 7 years, The Quickest Lady on Earth chronicles the incredible lifetime of expert racer and Tv identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly mixing inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this element documentary throws viewers straight into the cockpit for Jessi’s fantastic endeavor – and the value that she ultimately paid for good results.”
All I can say is that this film is very well-built, partaking and entertaining, still totally gut-wrenching to watch… akin to viewing young households board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna end. The filmmakers were being close mates who documented just about every stage of Jessi’s inspirational lifestyle and the film also answered quite a few burning queries that I had about the incident, and particulars of what specifically transpired on her very last run for glory in the jet-powered North American Eagle. If you have the opportunity, this movie is pretty a great deal well worth the enjoy.
Rest in Peace and God Speed, Jessi.
The motion picture premiers on HBO Max on Oct 20th.
