So where can you get ahold of this "A Sunday in Hell" documentary?
Who has a copy?

Yes, that's a legendary gaffe, though I believe the speed was supposed
to be 70 mph. Right.
I have to go with KB re the assessment of American Flyers -- but de
gustibus non disputandum est, as they say, i.e., whatever floats yer
But if you wanna see a real cycling movie in which The Cannibal is NOT
acting, watch A Sunday in Hell. I don't think there's much dispute
this is the best cycling documentary ever made.
