SPEED

Terry Martin (James Stewart), ex-race car driver, works for Emory Motors as a test driver. He falls for new company publicity agent Jane Mitchell, and competes with plant engineer Frank for her attentions. When his partner 'Gadget' (Ted Healy) is almost killed in a serious accident, Terry loses faith in himself and his new carburetor design. Gadget inspires Terry to keep trying, and they decide to test the invention at the corporate time trials. A fuel line breaks and ignites causing deadly fumes and smoke to fill the cockpit, and Terry is rushed to the hospital clinging to life.



Jimmy Stewart's first starring role.

Jimmy Stewart's first starring film is fun, with costarring support from best friend Ted Healy.
