The Speed-Elvis connection

May 8, 2008

There was a nice piece on the origins of Speed Racer on NPR’s Morning Edition.

I don’t really have any interest in seeing the movie. I’ve never been able to stay awake through any more than ten minutes of any of the Matrix movies, and the advertisements for the Speed Racer movie make me feel like a seizure is imminent. But the radio piece offers an interesting look at the property and its cross-cultural appeal.
