Tucker: The Man and His Dream Reviews:

Boy, what a frustrating movie to watch....even though it is very nice and has been a part of my collection for a number of years now. Still, it's difficult to see the nice guy, the tiny guy, beaten up by the large guys. Here's one storyline where Goliath beats David. Anyway, this was an interesting supposedly- true-life storyline of how Preston Tucker got a raw deal form the Large Three car-makers of the day, and by the government after he built a much better automobile in 1948. The movie features how the large men made sure Tucker's company never sold any of those cars.As mentioned, it's maddening to watch at times, to hear lies and false charges brought vs a boy who had the right concepts about vehicle security and engineering and was method ahead of his time.The 1940s atmosphere in this movie is very nice and the old melody is fun to hear, too. The cinematography is great, too, with some tinted vintage-type color at times. It looks unbelievable on DVD.The vehicle is super to look at and admire. Jeff Bridges does a solid job of portraying Tucker, an upbeat, positive-thinking inventor. It also was refreshing to see a nice, supportive family, too. I enjoyed all the main actors in this film: Bridges, Joan Alen, Martin Landau, Frederic Forest, Elias Koteas and Christian Slater


It's been a while since I saw this movie, and I was already acquainted with they storyline when I realized they'd made a film about it. The film lives up to the reality.No question, Preston Tucker was brilliant. When Uncle Sam requested designs for combat vehicles, he submitted, and demonstrated, a design which significantly blew away all competitors. He was turned down because his design significantly outperformed what Uncle Sam asked for. Small-minded individuals, mired in the relatively wimpy requirements, wouldn't take the more advanced design. It boggled his mind that they would turn down "steak with all the trimmings" in exchange for a "plain hamburger." I've been in the Military, so it doesn't surprise me.When he wanted to create a mission about safety, emphasizing the need for security glass and seatbelts (which were NOT standard equipment at the time), he invited the appropriate folks to lunch, served medium-rare roast beef, then showed pictures of folks who'd died in vehicle accidents. Lots of blood, lots of "raw meat." My driver's education teacher, trying to convince us to be safer drivers, did the same (minus the fancy lunch). Anyway, the similarities between what they saw on the screen, and what they'd just eaten, caused many of them to be "re-acquainted" with their lunch. I sincerely doubt they ever forgot the presentation, and his mission was very well made.I like this guy. He's whip-smart, practical, maybe a tiny too optimistic.I identify with him.And they broke him.Welcome to reality. Bites, doesn't it?In the end, he knows he's beaten, but he still gets the last word in. I hope I manage to do so well.


Thus is a magnificent movie. Firstly, the storyline line is just great. The real storyline of a boy who wars vs all the odds to realize his dream. Secondly, it's difficult to imagine a better cast. They do an extraordinary job in bringing to life all the unbelievable characters involved. Jeff Bridges is excellent as Tucker, and Landau is brilliant as the cash man. But what really makes this work, is the method Tucker's undying spirit is brought out. He seems to lose the war of making cars, but wins the ultimate war of fulfilling himself and keeping his integrity. {"They're only machines, the idea's the necessary thing."] Over the years, I have collected many hundreds of movies, but this one has to be in the top ten. By the way, I just loved the melody sound track. Very 40's.
