Vive Le Tour

I recently came across a 1962 documentary about the Tour de France entitled Vive Le Tour, directed and written by the late Louis Malle. Narrated by Jean Bobet the film provides a fascinating incite, in colour, into the Tour de France as it was in the early Sixties and at only 19 minutes long it's certainly easy viewing.

Below is the film in it's entirety, albeit in 2 parts. Language is in French with English subtitles.

Fantastic! The commentary, great music plus the angst make this one of the finest cycling videos!

It's pretty good isn't it. I think it is available at Amazon on VHS format only though.
