Tucker: The Man and His Dream
History tells us that would-be automobile mogul Preston Tucker was a silver-tongued con man, who misappropriated his investors’ money and played fast and loose with ethics and legalities in the pursuit of his dream. Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola isn’t buying this: to hear Coppola tell it, Tucker was “Mr. Smith Goes to Detroit,” a sincere visionary who tried and failed to buck the Big Three auto manufacturers.
