Just watch it

If you remember Evil as a kid a must see brought back a lot of memories

Loved it!

My Grandfather grew up in Butte with him and stayed in-touch with him. I will never forget the poster he signed for me I had for years, To Marc, Keep it on one wheel, happy landings, Evel Kneivel


This is an excellent film. Very entertaining and enlightening. Brings back memories of the 1970s and the man we all loved to watch on the Wide World of Sports. God bless Evel.
