What a fantastic human being!
17 November 2006 | by terrymwalshSee all my reviews

Roger Donaldson, thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me get to know that wonderful Kiwi, Burt Munro! What a legend and you have brought him to life for me in your recent movie 'The Worlds Fastest Indian' and now in your double DVD which includes your original documentary on Burt. I cannot say enough great things about this man and his 1920 Indian motorcycle and you Roger and your unfailing desire to bring him to life. Burt is a true legend and you Roger are not far behind him for bringing him to our attention! Great story, one of the best. Terry in Melbourne, Australia, a self-confessed car nut who just happens to like motorcycles too, though I've never owned one!!!
