Claude Lelouch’s “Rendezvous” : Google Maps + Google Video

Img413 1049
One of my favorite “Maker-made” films of all time is Claude Lelouch’s “Rendezvous” – “On an August morning in 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris. No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit.” _ This site uses Google maps and Google video to show the route through Paris as the movie plays – [via] – Link.

    Read the Wikipedia article. It was a Mercedes, with the sound of a Ferrari added later.
