Jam Handy really did his job well here he made a thoroughly understandable and even somewhat entertaining film about rear-axle differentials in cars. Unless you’re really into auto mechanics, this should be as dull as dishwater, but it isn’t. It’s even somewhat understandable to non-mechanically-inclined persons such as myself.
The amazing trick motorcycle riding scenes at the beginning and the bizarre couple that barrel rolls the rear wheels of a car help give it entertainment value. This film does what an industrial film ideally should do take a potentially dull and dense industrial topic and make it interesting and understandable.
