1962 Tour de France

Famed French film director Louis Malle shot the 1962 Tour de France and I have a videotape of the 20 minute (alas, only) result, "Vive le Tour!". Our good friends at have found the complete film on-line and I would recommend it highly. I love the scene where the riders dash through a bar and run outside with bottles of beer! And please note that all the riders are wearing spotless white socks, as it should be in racing.
