This feature documentary looks at the high-adrenaline life and times of American stunt performer and entertainer Evel Knievel. An entire generation grew up worshipping this self-styled hero, watching him every Saturday on Wide World of Sports and buying his Ideal toys. But few knew the incredible and often complex aspects of his epic life, which, like his jumps, was sometimes glorious and sometimes disastrous. With an entire genre of sports ascending from his daring inventiveness, now is the time to look at this extreme man and his complicated legacy.
