Beverly Hills, Ca. on Saturday Evening. I’m sitting down in a tiny, late 30s theater with about 75 shut mates and family of the late Jessi Combs, getting ready to view a personal premier screening of the approaching Documentary film about her lifestyle, The Quickest Woman on Earth. The film truthfully reveals Jessi’s private and public lifetime, and her quest to crack the all-out land pace file for a female, in the beginning set in 1976 by famous stuntwoman and fellow badass, Kitty O’Neil at 512 mph.
“Filmed over seven several years, The Fastest Girl on Earth chronicles the incredible lifestyle of expert racer and Television set identity Jessi Combs. Seamlessly blending inspiration and heartbreak with joy and tragedy, this feature documentary throws viewers straight into the cockpit for Jessi’s fantastic endeavor – and the selling price that she eventually paid out for accomplishment.”
All I can say is that this movie is very well-made, partaking and entertaining, yet completely intestine-wrenching to watch… akin to viewing young family members board the Titanic or 9/11 footage: You know how it’s gonna finish. The filmmakers had been shut friends who documented each step of Jessi’s inspirational existence and the movie also answered lots of burning queries that I had about the accident, and aspects of what accurately happened on her past operate for glory in the jet-driven North American Eagle. If you have the opportunity, this motion picture is extremely significantly truly worth the look at.
Rest in Peace and God Pace, Jessi.
The movie premiers on HBO Max on October 20th.
