Default WHO INVENTED THE PITT MANEUVER?

Why the "King of Cool" of course. The good ole days.

Over 10-minutes of zero dialog.

I can't find an online copy of the 1971 movie "Le Mans" to hot-link here, but that movie was the King of Cool's biggest project, and there is no dialogue until about 35 minutes into the film.

Oh, don't be like that, Bob. I didn't make the movie, I just like watching it- especially with people who have never seen it before. It's interesting to see how long they sit before they say something about the lack of dialogue.

By the way, Bob, P.I.T. only has one T in it. Our department doesn't teach it, but the department I used to work for does. It's kinda fun.

I learned how to do it while shooting second unit on "Stakeout".

It is fun, done right.
