The movie Checkpoint

Post by jim g » Thu Dec 25, 2014 9:05 pm

I watched a movie today called Checkpoint. It was recommended by another forum for the Ferrari Alfas And Aston Martin's in it. It was filmed in the mid 50's during the Mille Miglia race. Thats the Italian 1000 mile race. Its free to watch if you have Amazon Prime. There's a Riva going across the lake at the end of the movie.
