Blonde Comet (1941)
Directed by William Beaudine
Cast: Virginia Vale, Robert Kent, Barney Oldfield and Vince Barnett
Action / Drama
Beverly Blake, the 'Blonde Comet', and the daughter of a tire-manufacturer, gets behind the wheel of a race-car, and is soon tearing up the tracks and winning races in Italy, France and Germany. She comes back to race on American tracks. She meets Jim Flynn, another race-driver, and a rivalry is created, along with a romance. Beverly gives up her chance to win the big race by letting Jim race her car and he wins. His win also means a triumph for the racing-car carburetor he has invented and also for the tires manufactured by her father. It may have been somewhat of a setback for Women's Liberation, though.
