From The Movie Guide: "A long-delayed dream project for director Francis Ford Coppola, TUCKER: THE MAN AND HIS DREAM was one of the most visually sumptuous films of the 1980s. In a style that harkens back to the boundless optimism of 1940s American advertising art, the film tells the story of Preston Tucker --- part inventor, part con man --- who in the late 1940s attempted to produce his own car, which he dubbed the Tucker Torpedo, 'The Car of Tomorrow -- Today!'"

Nominated for Oscars for Best Supporting Actor (Landau), Art Direction, and Costume Design.
