(Please pay no attention to the oddball in uniform at the very end of this video. He apparently was not permitted to attend the premier.)

    For fans of Birmingham especially, I very highly recommend seeing Ford vs. Ferrari featuring Cristian Bale as Ken Wiles, the legendaty race car driver and designer from a suberb of Birmingham. The movie is sensational, woth an Oscar worthy performance by Christian Bale.
